University Policies at MSU Denver

A University policy is a statement of principles guiding the actions of MSU Denver students, employees, and community members. University policies and procedures align University operations with MSU Denver’s mission, strategic plan, and core values, along with external rules and requirements, including federal and state laws, regional accreditation criteria, and best practices in higher education.

The University Policy Library provides convenient access to University-wide policies and procedures. MSU Denver students, employees, and community members should familiarize themselves with all applicable University policies and procedures.

Individual departments may maintain additional standards and guidelines applying only to that unit, as long as the standards and guidelines are not in conflict with University policies. Such standards and guidelines do not override University policies and are often available on department websites.
