Compliance Policies

What is a University Policy?

A university policy is an officially approved written statement that sets standards or procedures for academic and administrative functions of the university; directs actions of faculty, staff, students and others who engage with the university or come onto its premises; and applies university-wide, across colleges, schools, and divisions. College, school, department, division, and unit policies are not subject to this policy, although university policies take precedence in the event of conflicts.

Where can I find University Policies?

The current official version of all university policies, both administrative and academic, is maintained on the university policies website.  

Compliance with University Policies:

Wright State faculty, staff and students, as well as other persons who visit or have contact with the university, are expected to comply with federal and state laws, applicable regulations and current collective bargaining agreements, and university policies.
