Procedures and Guidelines

Generally, procedures are methods established for the implementation of policies. If a policy is “what” the institution does, its procedures are “how” it carries out the requirements of a policy.

Some procedures found on this website are not linked to a particular policy, but rather were developed to provide guidance to the University community on matters of importance.

Guidelines are recommended practices designed to assist the University Community.

Examples of Procedures include:

The Academic Program Approval Process
