Standards of Conduct

The University considers cultivation of self-discipline by its students to be of great importance in the development of responsible citizens. Therefore, the University expects its students to maintain standards of personal discipline that are in harmony with the education goals and purpose of the University.

Students are expected to obey and conduct themselves in accordance with both the penal and civil statutes of the local, state and federal government and the Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents of the University of Texas System, UTPA’s Handbook of Operating Procedures, and to observe standards of conduct appropriate for an academic institution.
