New and Amended Regulations and Policies

On or before July 1, 2020, USF Regulations and Policies will be updated to reflect USF Consolidation to a single institution. As this process is ongoing and the Regulations or Policies may be updated before the final consolidation, if a distinction between existing institutions is appropriate, the University will apply the terms of the former Regulation or Policy that was in effect at the start of the applicable academic term. Each Regulation and Policy may be technically updated as necessary to reflect final consolidation requirements. To the extent USF retains designated locations with facilities, buildings and distinct titles for personnel, University Regulations and Policies will be applied with the specific characteristics applicable to those locations. Although technical amendments are effective immediately, for informational purposes the Consolidation section below will remain on this website until July 2020.

The following Policies and Regulations that have been adopted and amended in the last 30 days are listed below for informational purposes only. The documents are in PDF format. Please download Adobe Reader in order to view the documents.
