Policy Handbook

Welcome to Stanislaus State’s Policy Handbook

There are numerous University policies that affect all members of the University. Stanislaus State is in the process of updating and moving all of its policies to this online catalog to make them accessible to all in one location. University policies are subject to change through normal University policy-making procedures. Academic and personnel policies are required to be consistent with the Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs) approved by the California State University (CSU) system and the respective employee bargaining units. All employees are expected to adhere to University policies and procedures. Any errors, corrections, or omissions should be reported to the appropriate division as soon as possible.
