If you have questions regarding a specific policy, please contact Edith Nuno, Policy Analyst, Finance & Administrative Services.

University-wide administrative policies, procedures, and guidelines are managed by the Office of the Vice President for Finance and Administrative Services (VPFAS).

CSUSM PolicyStat is the online library that houses all active campus policies that have been officially approved through the steps in our Administrative Policy Process. This site is intended to serve as a resource for CSUSM's students, faculty, and staff to research policies that have university-wide application. Division, department and college policies, procedures, and guidelines that are specific to those areas will not be listed on PolicyStat.

As a note, though they are also housed on PolicyStat, Academic Senate policies are not managed by the VPFAS policy office and have their own separate approval process. For questions regarding Academic Senate policies, please reach out to the Senate Administrative Analyst.
