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. These footnotes are included because (1) all of the Regents' Rules and Regulations 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the Regents' Rules and Regulations; and (3) certain portions of the Institutional Rules have since their enactment been superseded or amended by the Regents' Rules and Regulations.

The Regents' Rules and Regulations are published online by the board.
