COS Booklists and Advanced Assignments

Course List:  Below is a list of Classes offered through Course of Study. (Think of this as your "Course Catalog".)  You will be able to click on the course title below and get information regarding booklist and advanced assignments regardless of when or where you are taking this course.  

Advanced Assignment Due Dates:  Please refer to the Course Schedule/Syllabus for registration deadlines and due dates for Advanced Assignments for the particular term, session, location in which you are enrolled.  Advance Assignments are usually due 2 weeks before class starts / meets; you may want to double check the syllabus or with the instructor.

MOODLE:  Moodle will have the most accurate and up to date information for the book lists, advanced assignments, and syllabus.  This is a great outline, but please double check with what is on Moodle for the class, session, and location, since the instructor may slightly change what is due, when it's due, and what texts they want you to focus on. 

*Note: COS Students do NOT have access to POPULI.  You may have received an email from Populi saying you are registered, which is true, but you can NOT click on the link in that email.  It is a new student management system, & it automatically sends an email when you add/drop a class.  You will still access MOODLE in the same manner as the past for your CLASS.
