VI. Procedures  

Policies are available for inspection by the College community during normal business hours. Individuals may request copies of policies for $.25 per page. This policy applies only to those College policies that have been formally adopted and are in full force and effect at the time of a request; it does not require the College to create new policies, or descriptions of its informal business practices that have not been codified as formal policy, in response to a request.

If an individual needs assistance locating a policy, he/she should contact the College’s Records Access Officer. All policies can be reviewed through the Office of the President.
