You can view past syllabi via myBama.

Procedure: Log into myBama; click on faculty or student tab. Under Banner Self-Service, click on ‘Class Schedule.’ Choose a fall or spring term. Submit. Under ‘subject,’ click on English, and enter ‘101,’ ‘102,’ ‘103,’or ‘104’ immediately below as the ‘Course.’ Scroll down, and click on ‘Class search.’ You’ll now be able to scroll through all courses offered that term and select syllabi. (Some syllabi may show a ‘log in to view additional content’ tab; you will need to click on it to view the entire doc).

A syllabus for each section needs to be posted in UA’s online syllabus management system (OSM) and then linked to your Blackboard course.
