University Policy Library: Academic Policies & Procedures

The University Policy Library: Academic Policies & Procedures is the official electronic repository for academic policy. The intent of this web page is to familiarize faculty with academic policies to help departments and faculty successfully pursue teaching, research, service, and administrative activities.

The Board of Governors is the designated body with the statutory power to adopt rules and regulations for the University of Central Missouri. The Board of Governors Policy Manual, UCM Procedures and Guidelines, and the Human Resources Procedures Manual have precedence and govern over Academic Policies & Procedures, as well as college and departmental manuals or similar documents. The University reserves the right to change or delete any provisions as deemed necessary.

Questions concerning the content and interpretation of Academic Policies & Procedures may be directed to the deans, department chairs, or the Office of the Provost.
