Student Rights and Responsibilities

The mission of The Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities (OSRR) is to promote a campus environment of student success and retention. We focus on a holistic approach to student rights and responsibilities in order to uphold the highest academic and behavioral standards as articulated in the Student Code of Conduct.

OSRR staff uphold the Student Conduct process for academic, behavioral and sexual misconduct issues on campus, educate the university community on civility and the Student Code of Conduct, and are advocates for students who may have questions regarding various community standards.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us by phone (210) 784-1353, email studentrr@tamusa.edu, or visit our office located in Madla suite 311 during business hours Monday-Friday 8:00am-5:00pm.

My conduct case is still open and unresolved. What will happen?

Conduct meetings will be held by phone and WebEx.

I had a conduct meeting scheduled, What happens now?

We are currently holding conduct meetings via phone and WebEx. Check your "@jaguar.tamu.edu" email address for correspondence from Maxient, our web-based case management system. If you have concerns about a virtual conduct meeting, please contact your assigned conduct officer.

I have questions about my assigned sanctions.

Please email your conduct officer directly for assistance.

I have a student conduct related hold on my student account. What should I do?

Email your conduct officer directly for assistance with student conduct related holds. If you are unsure who your assigned conduct officer is, please check your "@jaguar.tamu.edu" email address for correspondence from Maxient, our web-based case management system. If you still need assistance, please email studentrr@tamusa.edu with your full name,  J#, and what you need assistance with.

I need to report an incident. What should I do?

As always, we ask you submit an incident report through our online forms on our File A Report webpage. You may use these forms to report an incident or alleged violation of the Student Code of Conduct. Our first concern is the safety and well-being of our students. Please be aware, these forms are not monitored outside of university business hours. If you are reporting an immediate danger to the health and safety of yourself and/or others, please call UPD at 210-784-1911.

I called the main telephone number (210-784-1353), but no one answered. What should I do?

The best way to contact our office is via email, either studenrr@tamusa.edu or by emailing your conduct officer directly. While we are monitoring our phones, staff may not be able to answer when you call. We’ve found that students are often hesitant to leave a voicemail and instead prefer to call back frequently until a staff member is able to answer the phone. A better strategy is leaving a voicemail message with the following information: (1) your full name, (2) J#, (3) a callback number, and, (4) the reason for your call.

Fall 2020 Community. Safety. TOGETHER.

The Student Handbook


Assembled by the Division of Student Affairs, the Texas A&M University-San Antonio Student Handbook describes the expectations for behavior and conduct in the Jaguar community and outlines the procedures to be followed when these expectations are not met. It includes the Student Code of Conduct, the Academic Integrity Policy, as well as other rules, regulations, and policies governing student involvement.

As members of the University community, all enrolled students assume full responsibility for adhering to the university's values and goals.  Students are held responsible for staying abreast of their rights as students and for being cognizant on what is deemed proper conduct as outlined in the Student Handbook.
