The Academic Procedures Directory serves as a companion guide to a variety of processes that are mentioned in other academic policy documents (such as the Academic Catalog) where the details about how to accomplish particular actions are not fully spelled out. The Academic Calendar specifies deadlines for many academic processes and should be viewed as a companion to this Directory.
This directory also serves as a record of other important policies affecting the shape of academic programs at UMW, such as the requirements for a major or a minor program. The Directory is intended as a companion guide to a variety of compilations of academic policy, such as the online University Policy Manual (section D), the Undergraduate Academic Catalog, the Graduate Academic Catalog, and the Faculty Handbook (section 5).
The Directory is maintained by the Office of the Provost and updated as needed.
