Nearly every academic policy, no matter how minor, plays a role in the student experience. But most policies are determined one at a time, sometimes arbitrarily, and some can pose significant barriers to degree progress and graduation.

For example, dozens of strict bursar hold policies may prevent students from registering for courses at all. On the other hand, overly lenient course repeat policies might lead some students to proceed too far down the wrong path without guidance from an academic advisor.

To help you rethink and revise your own academic policies in support of student success goals, we have identified 18 policies with a particularly high impact on students.
