The University of Texas System operates under several sets of rules and regulations, including the Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents and the U. T. Systemwide Policies (UTS Policies), in addition to applicable state and federal laws. U. T. System Administration is also governed by Internal Policies (INT Policies).
The Regents' Rules and Regulations, found here, are the official repository of policies and procedures established for U. T. System by the Board of Regents. The U. T. Systemwide Policies and the Internal Policies are approved by the Chancellor. The procedures for implementation or changes to an existing policy are set forth in the Policy Development and Maintenance Guide, linked below.
