Effective date: October 1, 2012
From the funds appropriated in section 236, each public university shall develop, post, and maintain, on a user-friendly and publicly accessible Internet site, a comprehensive report categorizing all institutional general fund expenditures made by the university within a fiscal year. The report shall include institutional general fund expenditure amounts categorized both by each academic unit, administrative unit, or external initiative within the university and by major expenditure category, including faculty and staff salaries and fringe benefits, facility-related costs, supplies and equipment, contracts, and transfers to and from other university funds. The report shall also include a list of all employee positions funded partially or wholly through institutional general fund revenue that includes the position title, name, and annual salary or wage amount for each position. The university shall not provide financial information on its website under this section if doing so would violate a federal or state law, rule, regulation, or guideline that establishes privacy or security standards applicable to that financial information.

G. Community College Policies

WSU has become a signatory institution to the MACRAO (Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers) agreement.  As a result, WSU formally acknowledges that community college transfers who have select associate's degrees or MACRAO-stamped transcripts from a community college will have met University General Education Requirements, thereby expediting these students' path to graduation. This recognition will commence for students transferring to Wayne State beginning in Fall 2013. The conditions governing this agreement stipulate that Michigan community college students covered by the MACRAO agreement will still need to satisfy mathematics competency, the senior-level writing intensive requirement, and any requirements specific to a particular school/college or department within the student's major field of study. Information can be found online at:

WSU has signed reverse transfer agreements with Henry Ford Community College, Macomb Community College, and Oakland Community College. Others are forthcoming.
