General Academic Policies

General Academic Policies are in place to provide students with direction as they navigate their educational careers at the Health Science Center. These policies are consistent with federal law, rules and regulations under The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and University of Texas System, and accreditation standards under the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. General academic policies apply to all applicants and students regardless of program, school, or certificate or degree sought. They also apply to all non-degree students.

Each school and many programs have established policies specific to their students that must be adhered to in addition to general academic policies. Those can be found under each school's section in this Catalog.
