The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

Academic Responsibilities

Students are expected to inform themselves thoroughly concerning the regulations of the university and the course requirements for degrees, and to make inquiries in case of doubt.

Regulations will not be waived, nor exceptions to requirements made, on a plea of ignorance of the regulations and requirements. Students, therefore, should become familiar with all of the information related to the program contained in the University Catalog, on the university website, and in other official publications.

Each student, by registering, enters an academic college of the university and is under its jurisdiction with regard to the student’s program of study and degree requirements. For questions regarding waivers to course requirements and options, deficiencies, degree plan and special regulations, students should work directly with the person in their major who is assigned the responsibility of supervising their programs or seek assistance from the Academic Advising Center . Requests to waive regulations and/or requirements should be directed in writing to the dean of the college.
