An Administrative Rule is any regulation, standard, statement, or document of general applicability (that is not a policy) that describes the procedure or practice requirements of an agency; or implements, prescribes, or interprets an enactment of the general assembly or congress or a regulation adopted by a federal agency. Administrative Rules include the establishment of a fee, the amendment or repeal of a prior rule, and statements that relate to the discipline or housing of students. Administrative Rules do not include general policy statements that are substantially repetitious of existing law or ETSU statements.
The Administrative Rule development process is governed by the Tennessee Uniform Administrative Procedures Act, TCA Title 4, Chapter 5and is different than the policy development process. While policies are subject to a 14-day public comment period, Administrative Rules are required to go a through a formal public hearing, must be submitted to the Attorney General's Office for review and the General Assembly before a rule is approved by the Secretary of State. For more information on the Administrative Rulemaking Process, please review the Secretary of State's Rules and Regulations website. To locate informaion on a public hearing related to a specific rule, please visit the ETSU Notice of Public Hearings webpage.
