The purposes of this booklet are fourfold: (1) to provide the student with information about aspects of Student life at the University and Community College; (2) to notify the student of the rules for disciplinary procedures; (3) to notify the student of sanctions for violation of University and Community College rules; and (4) to advise the student to read this book, and any updates very carefully. Doing so will answer many questions about life on campus and will enhance the positive experience the University and Community College wants for each of its students.
Students are bound and required to observe the rules and regulations set forth in this book as a student at the University of Rio Grande and Rio Grande Community College. The University and Community College may change the rules, sanctions, and procedures for discipline. The Student Handbook will be updated annually (July) and all changes will be applied at that time.
The other students at the University and Community College are relying on your observance of these rules, just as you may rely on theirs; however, this booklet and its contents are not intended to be in the nature of a contract enforceable by you against the University. While this booklet does set forth the duties and obligations the University and Community College and fellow students will expect of you, the University and Community College retains all rights they have in regards to the operation of the institutions before the printing and dissemination of this handbook.
