Policy Manual

This manual serves as a resource for university administration, faculty, and staff and supplements its companion document, the University of Central Oklahoma Faculty Handbook, which encompasses policy directly related to faculty.  The university graduate and undergraduate catalogs communicate academic policy and degree requirements to students and the general public.  These policies are subject to change.  Additions and revisions are made periodically.
