Code of Policies

This web page is intended to serve as a resource for members of the Washington and Lee University community who may need to read or link to certain University policies.

While this Code of Policies is intended to serve as a reference tool and centralized location for most policies applicable across the University community, it does not contain all University policies. Additional policies and guidelines can be found in the Student Handbook, Employee HandbookFaculty Handbook, and on departmental websites such as Student Affairs, Human Resources, and the Office of the Provost.

Departments that wish to include any of these policies on their own website should link to the version on this site to avoid multiple (and potentially outdated) versions of the policy.
