Policies, Procedures & Guidelines

McMaster University Policies, Procedures and Guidelines are divided into twelve broad subject categories. Within each category there are titles which narrow the subject information. From these titles the policy textual document can be selected. Each policy, procedure or guideline contains information at the start which includes the position responsible for developing and maintaining the document ("owner" of the policy) and a contact department. If you require further information or clarification, simply point to the contact department and send them a message via e-mail.

Policies, procedures and guidelines are added, deleted and amended on an ongoing basis by the "owner" of the policy. If there is a discrepancy between the electronic policy and the written copy held by the policy "owner", the written copy prevails.

For information concerning adding a policy, procedure or guideline to the University listing, please e-mail us at policy@mcmaster.ca. Your comments and suggestions are welcome.
