Administrative Services Procedures Manual

The Administrative Services Procedures Manual (ASPM) is a compendium of approved College processes intended to guide faculty and staff as they go about the College's day-to-day business.  This manual reflects the operational philosophies and realities of a dynamic educational institution, and as such, the processes of the College, and the policies which underpin those processes, change from time to time.  While we strive to update the sections of this manual to reflect current policies and procedures, changes occasionally render parts of the manual obsolete.  Members of the College family should also refer to the Intercom and the notes of the Administrative Council for the most recent information about College policy and procedure.

Nothing in the ASPM shall be interpreted as creating any right or benefit not otherwise provided by law, or which is contrary to any applicable law, policy, rule or regulation of the United States or the Commonwealth of Virginia and its agencies.

The Introduction - ASPM Purpose and Use provides more information on this manual's purpose, background, limitations and on its revision procedures.

The list below provides links to all ASPM sections (with 'revised' dates) that are currently approved.  If the policy or procedure you are seeking does not indicate a recent revision, please contact the responsible department for more information or clarification.
