University Policies and Rules
This site provides access to University-wide policies and serves as a resource to support policy development and management at WSU. We encourage all WSU students and personnel to use this site as the main source for University policies. University policies published on WSU school, department, or unit websites should reflect the most up-to-date information and align with this website.
Note: Policies that are specific to a WSU campus, school, department, or program are not listed here. Refer to those individual websites for that information.
Refer to Executive Policy 5: Policy on Policies for information on the development, approval, and publication of University policies and procedures.
