Appendix C. Institutional Rules on Student Services and Activities

 

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treated only in the Regents' Rules; and (3) certain portions of the Institutional Rules have since their enactment been superseded or amended by the Regents' Rules.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 are published at http://www.utsystem.edu/bor/rules/.
