Northeastern Illinois University Policy Library

Northeastern Illinois University's Policy Library was created to allow the University community easy access to University policies, procedures, guidelines and forms. Policies contained in this library are developed and approved through the process established by G1.1 Formulation and Issuance of University Policies. Please be aware this site does not contain all University policy information. Individual departments throughout the University may also have internal policies specific to their office. Use the navigation menu on the left of this page to access University policies.

Policy History

In 1995, President Gordon H. Lamb established the Administrative Memorandum Series (AMS) as a means of documenting University policy, procedures and guidelines. In 2011, Northeastern adopted the Formulation and Issuance of University Policy that established a template to standardize University policy. Since then, each document in the AMS has been or will be reviewed and revised for consistency and cohesion to ensure that it is current and accurate. Please visit the Administrative Memorandum Series web page through the menu on the left to access those AMS documents which still serve as official University policy.

Policies for Review

As part of the policy development process, the University will post final draft policies to this web page for comments from the University community. The deadline to submit comments is 30 days from the final draft posted date. Please send an email with any questions or comments regarding University policy to

There are currently no policies out for public comment.
