What if I only need to make minor revisions or non-substantive changes to a policy?
Non-substantive policy changes are changes that primarily pertain to technical revisions such as changes to position titles, words, definitions, procedures, grammar corrections, etc. (i.e. - changing the number of people on a committee from four to five.) Note: All non-substantive changes are subject to approval by the UNT System Office of General Counsel.
- Contact the policy specialist who will assist in determining whether the change is substantive or non-substantive.
- Complete the Policy Approval Form, attach the revised policy and obtain the appropriate signatures.
- Submit a hardcopy and an electronic version of the policy draft to the policy specialist, along with a redline version of the proposed changes.
- Non-substantive changes will be made to the policy website.
Please contact the individual who is listed as the contact person for the policy or call the University Policy Office at (940) 565-4142.
