Introduction to the Academic & Student Affairs Handbook
The Policy Manual of the Board of Regents is the authoritative source of information concerning Board of Regents’ (BoR) approved policies governing academic and student matters. The Academic Affairs Handbook is the procedural guide for implementing BoR policies related to Academic Affairs. The purpose of the handbook is to offer procedural information for implementing Board policy needed by chief academic officers and chief student officers of the institutions of the University System of Georgia.
This handbook consists of the following four sections:
- Section 1. Organization and Administration
- Section 2. Academic Programs
- Section 3. Student Affairs
- Section 4. Academic Personnel
The handbook is updated regularly as policy evolves.
It is the responsibility of the Office of Academic Affairs at each institution to ensure that all appropriate institutional personnel have access to the handbook and understand these guidelines. Campus staff should follow these guidelines consistently in carrying out their work.
