University policies and procedures apply to many aspects of student life. As a UQ student, you must comply with both University-wide and program-specific regulations.

The following is a selection of key policies and rules. You can also search the Policy and Procedures Library for other topics.

Policies and rules

Policies and rules must be read alongside the rules of your specific program.

The Courses and Programs website is a comprehensive directory of UQ programs, dating from 2008 to present. After you search for your program, you can view its program rules.

You must consult the program rules for the year you first enrolled in a program (i.e. if you enrolled in an arts degree in 2016, consult the Bachelor of Arts program rules for 2016).

In some instances, you may be allowed to consult newer or updated program rules – check with an advisor in your faculty for confirmation.
