Article 1: Purpose of the Student Handbook
Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) provides undergraduate and graduate level course work in the four colleges of the University. In the tradition of American higher education, Texas A&M International University transmits and creates knowledge, provides an opportunity for the personal growth and development of individuals, supports the spirit of free inquiry, and contributes to the improvement of its surrounding society. The University recognizes its special obligation to serve the higher education needs of South Texas, while serving the larger communities of Texas, the United States, and the world.
It is the responsibility of the administration, faculty, staff, and students to be aware of and abide by all approved policies, procedures, rules, and regulations set forth by The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents that are posted on the System home page or that are disseminated through handbooks and manuals to all component campuses that make up The Texas A&M University System (TAMUS). The TAMIU Student Handbook, which contains a description of the rights and responsibilities of all students enrolled at this institution, is posted on the University website for quick reference and easy access to students, faculty, and staff.
The statements set forth in the Student Handbook should not be construed as the basis of a contract between the student and the institution.
While the provisions of the Student Handbook will ordinarily be applied as stated, TAMIU reserves the right to change any provisions listed without notice to individual students. It should be noted that all students are responsible for keeping abreast of any changes in regulations and/or procedures that may have bearing on their enrollment at TAMIU.
