CONTENTS of APPENDIXES |
There are in this printing of the Institutional Rules on Student Services and Activities (known as the Institutional Rules) a number of footnotes that cite portions of the Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System (known as the Regents' Rules). These footnotes are included because (1) all of the Regents' Rules have full force and effect as concerns the University
of Texas at Austin; (2) certain aspects of student services and activities are treated only in the Regents' Rules; and (3) certain portions of the Institutional Rules have since their enactment been
superseded or amended by the Regents' Rules.
The Regents' Rules may be consulted at the following locations on the campus of
the University of Texas at Austin: the offices of the vice president for student affairs, the
dean of students, the director of Campus and Community Involvement, the director
of Counseling, Learning, and Career Services, the director of Student Financial Services,
the director of the International Office, the director of the Office of Public Affairs, the
director of the Texas Union, the academic deans and department chairmen, and at the
University libraries and the Center for American History.
