Policies, Procedures and Guidelines

Welcome to SUNY Empire State University's policies, procedures and guidelines website. Here you will find standardized university policies that have been through the official approval process. These policies and procedures align with the mission of the university, and have been developed with appropriate consultation across the university. They are intended to mitigate institutional risk, enhance effectiveness, and support the university's compliance with federal, state, SUNY, and local laws and regulations.

As an institution of higher education that receives funding under Title IV; a state entity; and an institution of SUNY; Empire State University adheres to all federal, state and SUNY regulations. Where the university does not have a policy specific to a situation, additional references are listed that direct users to resources for regulations outside of the universitys webpage. Additionally, individual policies reference state and SUNY regulations for information and guidance beyond that provided in the policy.

Policies are listed by category below, as well as through an A-Z Index and a policy search.

Program guidelines are now located in the university catalog.
