Armstrong State University Policies

Welcome to Armstrong’s policy webpage! The policies listed below represent campus-wide policies, which shall be defined as policies which broadly impact the university. Each of these policies has been vetted through the policy review process outlined in Campus-wide Policies opens in new window. If you have any suggestions for new polices or would like to request changes to an existing policy, please refer to the process outlined in this document for detailed instructions. New policies should utilize the Template for Policies Download Word Doc whenever possible.

Please keep in mind that many policies are specific to particular departments and will therefore not appear on this page. If you have questions regarding departmental policies, please refer the departmental webpage or contact the department directly. In addition, Armstrong is governed by the Board of Regents’ Policy Manual new window, which should be referenced whenever applicable. The policies listed below will often be more restrictive than applicable Board of Regents’ policies, but will never be less restrictive. Every effort will be made to incorporate changes to Board of Regents’ policies in a timely manner; however, any conflicts with Armstrong and Board of Regents’ policies will be resolved in deference to Board of Regents’ policies.

Please note this listing offers two methods for searching for policies. If you know that a policy exists but cannot recall its exact name, enter a key word or words into the search box on the left. If you do not know whether a policy exists for a particular topic, enter a key word or words into the search box on the right.
