Policies and Procedures

Effective July 1, 2015, Oregon Institute of Technology (Oregon Tech) became a separate legal entity from the Oregon University System and now operates under its own Board of Trustees. With the dissolution of the OUS System many of the Oregon Administrative Rules (OARs) specific to Oregon Tech and higher education in general were repealed.

Former OARs in Chapter 578, specific to Oregon Tech, were effectively readopted as Oregon Tech University Policies in substantially identical form on July 1, 2015. For convenience, until all policies are reviewed, the University Policies that were previously OARs will maintain their previous OAR numbers, without the “OAR” designator.

Chapter 580 of the OARs, previously promulgated by the State Board of Higher Education, were also effectively readopted as University Policies in substantially identical form on July 1, 2015. They are now also incorporated into the University Policies, retaining their previous OAR numbers without the “OAR” designator.

In addition, SBHE Internal Management Directives (IMDs) and board policies were also effectively readopted as Oregon Tech University Policies in substantially identical form on July 1, 2015.

To interpret the Policies during this transition period, note that “Board” or “State Board of Higher Education” now refers to Oregon Tech’s Board of Trustees; “Chancellor” means “University President;” “Institution” means Oregon Tech; and so on.

This website collects all of the applicable University Policies that were previously SBHE Chapter 580 OARs, SBHE Policies, SBHE IMDs, or Oregon Tech Chapter 578 OARs, as well as new University-wide Policies promulgated after July 1, 2015. This website also indicates which SBHE Chapter 580 OARs, SBHE Policies, SBHE IMDs and Oregon Tech Chapter 578 OARs have been repealed or superseded by action of the University since July 1, 2015.

For additional information about the Oregon Tech Policies during this transition period, please contact the Office of the Board of Trustees at (541) 885-1107.
