About

The Georgia State policy library houses the official collection of all university-wide policies (those that impact the members of the University community across all colleges and divisions).  The colleges, schools, divisions , and departments of the University may have additional policies that govern their operations and such policies are not housed in the Georgia State Policy Library.  For college, school, division, or department policies, please check the web sites of those colleges, schools, divisions or departments.

The purpose of the library is to ensure that the university community has easy access to the most current policies.   To locate a policy, you may use the search box function or the alphabetical policy index.  You may further limit your search by policy category.  If your initial search term does not locate the policy in question, you may try another search term or scan the index.

Georgia State University makes every reasonable effort to ensure that the information contained in the Policy Library is accurate and current, but no claim is made by the University that the compendium is exhaustive.

Georgia State University reserves the right to amend or revoke its policies at any time. The policies contained in the Policy Library do not create a contract between the University and a student or employee.

New policies are entered as soon as possible after they are passed, but there may be a delay before posting. If you have any doubt or question about a policy in the Policy Library, you should contact the office listed as the Responsible Office for that particular policy.

The Policy Library does not include policies pertaining to undergraduate or graduate admissions. Please refer to the appropriate catalog for that information.

The Policy Library includes only university-wide policies. It does not include individual college policies. Please check with the individual colleges for those policies.

The policy management process is overseen by the Office of Institutional Effectiveness. If you have any questions or comments about this site or see errors in the policy library, please contact Mary McLaughlin (mmclaughlin@gsu.edu, 404-413-2583).
