1.1 Purpose of Academic Affairs Procedures Manual

This Colorado School of Mines Procedures Manual for the Office of Academic Affairs is published and maintained by the staff of the Provost.  This Manual is not a repository of official Colorado School of Mines policies.  Instead, it is largely a compendium of procedures and information that have been established to implement policy and facilitate operations in academic units under the general direction of the Provost.  It is a living document that is updated as policy evolves, and as improved and more streamlined procedures are developed to implement policy.  As such, the Office of Academic Affairs welcomes constructive feedback on procedural improvements that facilitate interactions among the academic units of the Colorado School of Mines and its administration.

A current copy of the Manual is maintained electronically on the Academic Policies website at


and academic units are encouraged to maintain an up-to-date hard-copy version of the Manual within their Office and to make faculty and staff aware of its location and function.
