CWUP 5-90-010 Academic Policy

(1) Academic policy will be established and monitored by the Faculty Senate Academic Affairs Committee (AAC).

(2) The AAC shall be concerned with the study and improvement of academic standards, academic policies and regulations, and academic organizational structures.  The committee shall review and recommend changes to academic policy (5-90 of the CWU Policies and Procedures manuals).  It shall perform other duties as maybe requested by or approved by the Faculty Senate Executive Committee.

(3) All academic policies that change the requirements for degree conferral should follow the catalog deadlines for the next academic year and go in effect the fall quarter following publication of the official electronic catalog.

(4) Policy changes to degree requirement(s) are not retroactive; the student is bound to the catalog the student became matriculated into, and to the catalog the student was admitted to the major program(s).

(5) The AAC works closely with the Dean of Student Success, the Provost Council, Registrar, Director of Admissions, and others as appropriate.

(6) When questions of interpretation of academic policy arise, the AAC will consult with appropriate stakeholders and make recommendations to the Faculty Senate Executive Committee.
