Welcome to the University Policy Office
This website is the definitive source for the most current Purdue University system-wide policies. Policies duplicated on other websites or in print may not be the most current version.
This site was recently updated. Policies are now organized into eight volumes, which are listed in the top gray navigation bar. Because of this reorganization, the policy numbers have changed and a crossover grid is available to show the old and new numbers of each policy. Executive memoranda maintain their existing numbers. Use the Find a Policy page if you are having trouble locating a policy.
Each of the four campuses maintains additional administrative policies specific to their needs and structure. Individual colleges, schools and departments may adopt distinct practices, standards or guidelines, all of which must be consistent with these system-wide policies. The Helpful Links page provides a list of where this additional information may be found. Academic regulations are generally not included on this website and can be found either on the Student Regulations website or by contacting the Office of the Provost.
We would like to thank Cornell University and the University of Minnesota for sharing their insights as models for university policy oversight and development.
