Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents
A student at UTSA neither loses the rights nor escapes the responsibilities of citizenship. Compliance is expected with both the penal and civil statutes of the state and federal governments, the Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System, The University of Texas System Student Conduct and Discipline Model Policy, and the policies and procedures of the University.
All students of UTSA are subject to the rules and regulations governing student conduct and discipline as set out in Series 50000, Rule 50101, Sec. 2 of the Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System, and the Handbook of Operating Procedures.
The Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents, the Handbook of Operating Procedures, and the UTSA Student Policies have full force and effect as they concern all UTSA students. The Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents and the Handbook of Operating Procedures may be consulted on the Internet.
To the extent provided by applicable law, no person shall be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any program or activity sponsored or conducted by The University of Texas System or any of its institutions on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, citizenship, and veteran status. Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is also prohibited pursuant to University policy (Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents, Series 10000, Rule 10701, Sec. 1; UTSA Handbook of Operating Procedures, Chapter 9, § 9.01; UTSA Student Policies, and the Student Code of Conduct). Students can notify the University of any violations of these policies by contacting Student Conduct and Community Standards or the Office of Equal Opportunity Services. If any student feels they have been subjected to prohibited discrimination, including sexual harassment, they may file a complaint with the Office of Equal Opportunity Services. Students must file a complaint within thirty (30) days from the date the alleged incident or problem occurred.
