Home / College Policies

The College Policies website provides a convenient place to access College-wide policies. Policies are categorized by chapter for easy navigation. You may also search for policies by keyword or phrase, using the search box.  Individual policies may be printed through the browser's print function.

Policy Approval Process

All proposed new policies and changes to existing policies must be submitted and approved in compliance with the policy on College Policy Development and Management.

The Committee on College Policy Development (CCPD) is a team that works in partnership with policy owners to properly vet policies and ensure that they are aligned with the College’s mission and goals.  See F&M Policy Development Training for more information (F&M login required).
