Student Conduct

Student Rights and Obligations

Students must respect each others rights. These rights include respect for personal feelings, freedom from indignity of any type, freedom from the control of others except as may be in accord with published rules and procedures of Texas A&M University-Texarkana or the Texas A&M University System, and conditions that allow the best use of time and talents toward educational objectives. No officer or student, regardless of position or rank, shall violate these rights; the university will allow no custom, tradition, or regulation in conflict with these rights to prevail. At all times, students must recognize constituted authority, conform to the ordinary rules of good conduct, maintain honesty, respect the rights of others, protect private and public property, and make the best use of time toward the completion of an education. The “Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities” (Code) is neither exhaustive nor does it encompass all possible relationships between students and the institution.  The “Code” is not rigid or unchangeable.  As the relationship between students and the university grows, authorities may modify the “Code.”

Students should know and observe university rules and procedures. Ignorance of these rules and procedures does not excuse students from adherence to them.  Staff and university officials should endeavor to inform students of university rules, regulations, policies, and procedures whenever the circumstance applies.  Students may find additional information on the Student Conduct website.
