Policies and Guidelines
WVU has certain policies and guidelines that inform its academic functions. Many of our university-specific policies are created by WVU's Faculty Senate or by the WVU Board of Governors. Other policies - designed for statewide implementation - have been created by the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission (HEPC).
You can find many university-specific policies listed in WVU's academic catalog. We've also highlighted other policies that are pertinent to faculty and academic staff.
