U.S. colleges and universities are facing new demands from a growing group of students who say they need to know more about the subject material they take in order to succeed.
Many are also complaining that the course syllabus they receive from their university is lacking or lacking a clear direction.
While many have tried to find out more about their courses, they say they are often left confused, frustrated and angry.
Some of the more notable complaints include:The syllabus is out of date and doesn’t include new materials that are required for a new degree.
It doesn’t tell students what topics they will need to study for their bachelor’s degree.
And, in some cases, the syllabi is so vague and incomplete that students are not even able to figure out what topics are covered.

“This is really a problem for the university,” said one student, who asked not to be named.
“It’s very confusing, I mean, they need a little more guidance on what topics we’re supposed to be focusing on.”
The college has said it is working on a plan to correct the problem, but some students say they have not heard back from the university.
“I think that they need more guidance,” said another student.
“They are not taking students seriously at all.”
Another student who has taken a course from a college near her home campus, said the syllabis are not being updated.
“When they send out their syllabi, it says, ‘This is a syllabus for a two-year program, and it is not clear what the course is about,’ ” she said.
“So, that’s very disappointing to me.
It’s disappointing to my friends, it’s disappointing for my students.”
One student who took a course at another college told CNN he did not know how to navigate the syllabet.
“What is the syllable for?
And how do I look up a topic that’s not on that syllabus?” he said.
The University of Texas at Austin is facing similar criticism, as is Princeton University.
It recently updated its syllabus to make it more clear what topics it is teaching students.
But the syllabs it sent to students were still vague and not easy to navigate.
The College Board, which provides syllabi to colleges and is responsible for creating the syllables, says it is also working on ways to better serve students.
“Our goal is to make our syllabuses as accurate and complete as possible, and the College Board is working to update its syllabi for the 2019-2020 academic year,” said spokesman Eric Mouton.
