How to Identify Regulations:
Regulations are organized by category (University, Undergraduate, or Graduate) and alphabetically within each category.
Additionally each regulation has a unique two character identifier that identifies its category, assigns a number indicating what order it falls in within the category, and where applicable a letter identifying its status as a subsidiary to a parent regulation.
The University category is designated by a “W” (standing for WOU). The Undergraduate category is designated by a “U” (standing for Undergraduate). The Graduate category is designated by a “G” (standing for Graduate).
For example, regulation W-2c is identifiable by the “W” as a university regulation and the “2” identifies it as the second university regulation and the “c” indicates that it is the third subset of the parent W-2 regulation.
University regulations contain rules and information that are applicable to all students; undergraduate, graduate, post-baccalaureate, and non-admit students.
University regulations are identifiable by the “W” (standing for WOU) that proceeds the regulation number. For example, regulation W-1 the university regulation related to WOU’s Course Numbering System and appears as “Course Number System (W-1)” on the list of regulations.
Undergraduate regulations are applicable to undergraduate, post-baccalaureate and non-admit undergraduate students.
Undergraduate regulations are identifiable by the “U” (standing for Undergraduate) that proceeds the regulation number. For example, regulation U-5 is the undergraduate regulation related to Class Standing and appears as “Class Standing (U-5)” on the list of regulations.
Graduate regulations are applicable to all graduate and non-admit graduate students.
Graduate regulations are identifiable by the “G” (standing for Graduate) that proceeds the regulation number. For example, regulation G-5 is the graduate regulation related to Filing a Program Plan and appears as “Filing a Program Plan (G-5)” on the list of regulations.
