  • About Policies and Operating Procedures

    All university policies are established by the ASU System and apply to all campuses. They provide university employees guidance to 

    • ensure compliance with state and federal laws and regulations
    • maintain adequate internal controls to safeguard the university's assets
    • provide consistent management of resources across the system
    • understand the university's expectations for conducting business and communicate these expectations to others 

    Operating procedures are established at the campus-level and may vary between campuses. They are needed to

    • guide internal processes
    • maintain consistency in operations
    • where necessary, give detailed steps that should be taken to complete a process
  • Additional Procedures and Handbooks

    Some colleges, divisions and departments of the University have additional procedures that govern their specific operations, and such procedures are not found on this site. Please check the webpages of colleges, divisions and departments for additional procedures.
