Policy and Forms

The University College Policy Register is a compilation of the official university, administrative and operational policies of Kent State University and policies specific to our division. The purpose of this online register is to serve University College community as a source of reliable information and as a foundation on which decisions should be made.

It is the duty of University College - Office of the Dean to oversee the policy forms register while sustaining compliance with the policy criteria of the university compiled by the office of the General Counsel and the Kent State University Constitution.

It is the duty of the Office of General Counsel to record in the University Policy Register, upon receipt, any university, administrative or operational policies as approved in accordance with the Kent State University Constitution and the rules of the Ohio Legislative Service Commission. Upon its posting in this official University Policy Register, that particular policy or procedure will then be recognized as official and operational. The effective date of the policies will be 14 days after it is submitted to the Commission. University College will follow this same process to update internal policies to remain compliant.

Note: with the exemption of exigent circumstances, policies must be implemented at the beginning of each academic term (Fall, Spring and Summer).

Policies cannot be retroactively applied prior to the effective date.

This Policy Register is updated through periodic additions, deletions and changes. Policies under revision or pending will be marked "Policy Under Revision" in red to indicate that the reader should be aware that the language may be revised.

If you have any questions, comments, and or concerns, please contact the Business Manager in University College.
