Why Compliance Matters to Me:
Texas A&M University makes great efforts to create an environment where your student is safe and secure; physically, emotionally and financially. Our efforts do not replace the need for knowledge of the University’s rules and guidelines, and personal responsibility for decisions and actions of students. Compliance is a willingness to follow a prescribed course of action, such as laws and regulations. Compliance is not about policing people’s behavior; it is about constantly striving to understand our many and varied obligations and follow them.
