Student Rights and Responsibilities

Campus Policies

Here are a few of the most commonly referenced rules and policies at California State University, Chico. Different policies are labeled differently, depending on where the rule originated from and who it applies to. 

An Executive Order (EO) is a policy which originates with the CSU system, and is a rule followed by all universities in the CSU system. An up-to-date list of all Executive Orders exists on the California State University Policy Library webpage. (opens in new window)

An Executive Memorandum (EM) is a policy which originates with CSU Chico, and is a rule created for and followed by Chico State exclusively. An up-to-date list of all Executive Memoranda exists on the Office of the President's webpage . (opens in new window)

Some policies originate on the State or Federal level (such as Title 5 and FERPA, discussed below) and are not labeled EO or EM, but still apply to Chico State. 

The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities encourages all students, staff, and faculty to read and know these rules in order to stay informed of the standards to which they will be held accountable.
