Establish, revise or inactivate a policy for a department, college or university-wide

Academic policies pertain to regulations or procedures developed to maintain standards while assuring fair and consistent treatment of students. Some examples of policies include those relating to admission to the university, selective admission requirements for one or more programs or retention criteria. Academic policies are found, typically, in the University Catalog. The term policy also includes university policies, administrative policies and operational procedures and regulations, which are found in the University Policy Register.

Academic policies are exclusive of program requirements. If you want to revise a policy within an academic program, use the paperwork above to "revise or inactivate a major, concentration, minor or certificate."
