Academic Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual

The Academic Administrative Policies and Procedures Manual (AAPPM) provides guidance on the implementation of Senate and University policies and procedures concerning undergraduate education at Penn State. 

The Administrative Council on Undergraduate Education (ACUE) is responsible for the design of academic and administrative policies and procedures that support the University's undergraduate education goals and objectives.  Within the framework of Senate and University policies, ACUE formulates the formal implementation that guides the offering, delivery, and assessment of academic programs and learning opportunities, the admission and enrollment of undergraduate students, and other related matters.

ACUE is the principal administrative advisory agency to the President, Executive Vice President and Provost, Vice President and Dean for Undergraduate Education, and the academic deans of the colleges, Outreach, and the University Libraries on administrative matters that impact undergraduate education across the University.
