You will be able to continue to edit and change the syllabus content by following steps 2-7 of this guide throughout the term, until your term/semester ends.
- If you see the course section status change to Approval Pending rather than Published, that means that your institution has chosen to allow administrators to review the syllabi before releasing them to students.
- If you do not see the blue Edit button available after your course section is in Published status, please contact your institution's AEFIS administrator. Example of what is expected once the course section is in Published status on the Course Syllabus page:
The syllabus will not be available to students until the course section is published.

Please note: The Reset button will delete all syllabus data and reset the content to the Course Syllabus defaults. Once deleted, the data cannot be recovered.
The reset button will only delete the information which was entered at the Course Section level. Information that is added on the Course level will remain untouched.
