The Northeast Community College Board Policy and Administrative Procedures Manual contains information on policies and administrative procedures which govern college operations. All policies contained in the Manual are effective as of the date enacted by the Board of Governors, regardless of whether updated versions are readily available on the website. All procedures are effective as of the date approved by the President. Board policies are binding on all members of the Board of Governors, officers, employees, students and visitors to the College.

The Northeast Community College Board Policy and Administrative Procedures Manual, as amended from time to time, replaces and supercedes all previous policy manuals and handbooks. To the extent that any other College, published or non-published, guidelines or procedures are inconsistent with the Manual, the Board Policy and Administrative Procedures Manual shall control. To the extent that any policy in the Manual is inconsistent with State or Federal law, the State or Federal law shall control. Action to modify, amend or delete policies contained within the Manual requires the approval of a majority of the Board of Governors at a duly constituted public meeting of the Board. Although the online version of the Manual is continuously and expeditiously updated it may not reflect recent changes to Board policy and administrative procedures. The official version of the Manual shall be in the President’s office. Nothing contained in the Manual constitutes an employment contract, expressed or implied, or an offer to contract with any individual or external entity for any duration. Moreover, nothing contained within the Manual changes the employment-at-will status of any employee, nor creates any additional rights, remedies or expectations of continued employment.

While the Manual contains a number of fundamental policies of Northeast Community College, the Manual is not intended to cover every situation that may arise or relate to every regulation, procedure or policy of the College since its intent is not such comprehensive in scope. In the absence of applicable policy, the President is authorized to establish needed procedures which, if need to be approved as policy, shall be presented to formal approval at the next regularly scheduled Board meeting.
