I've been looking for the etymology of the word greensheet, specifically when used in the context of academia.

I know it's just another way to say "syllabus", but where did the "green" in greentext come from? I've searched Google multiple times using different keywords, including greensheet word etymologyorigins of greensheet wordwhere does the word greensheet come from but am having no luck at all.

In the U.S., the greensheet is the syllabus all college professors will give out or ask students to take note of in the first few days of classes.
