University Policies

Welcome to the University of Rhode Island Administrative Policies page. This webpage is the official source for administrative policies at the University.

The University is in the process of moving all administrative policies onto this webpage. In the interim, certain policies may exist in other web locations at the University during the transition. Any copies (print or online) of policies duplicated elsewhere or that are inconsistent with the policies posted on this website may not be the most up-to-date version and should be disregarded. Polices can be searched by title keywords and filtered alphabetically and by category.

Older versions of existing policies may be find in the Administrative Policy Archives. See the link below.

Where appropriate, official procedures are listed with the official policy. Departments may have additional practices, standards, or guidelines to control activities at the University, though these guidelines may not contradict the terms of any University policy.
