Texas A&M University at Galveston is a community that is dedicated to personal and academic excellence. Choosing to join the community obligates each member to a code of civilized behavior. The purpose of this website (www.tamug.edu/studentrules) is to present the rules that govern student conduct and student activities at Texas A&M University and that describe faculty and staff obligations in their work with students. These rules result from years of experience and are the products of student, staff and faculty thought.
Each individual student, faculty member and staff employee is expected to read this handbook carefully and observe its requirements. Particular attention should be given to the Aggie Code of Honor, the University Statement on Harassment and Discrimination and the Students’ Rights and Responsibilities.
No rule, no matter how carefully worded, can cover all eventualities completely. Beyond specific rules, we should all aspire to conduct ourselves with respect for others, the highest ethical standards and personal integrity. That is what the Aggie Spirit is all about.
Each student has the responsibility to be fully acquainted with and to comply with the Texas A&M University at Galveston University Student Rules. More specific rules, information and procedures may be found in various publications pertaining to each particular service or department. When available, links have been provided to the appropriate web sites.
The Texas A&M University at Galveston Student Rules are broken down into four (4) sections, with additional information provided in the appendixes:
