Administrative Policy Manual

The Administrative Policy Manual is a publication of Sul Ross State University which describes the policies and procedures governing the operation of the university. The APM is designed to reflect the executive management of SRSU in accordance with the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board; Rules and Regulations, The Texas State University System; and local, state and federal law, as applicable. SRSU employees are expected to be familiar with and follow the policies and procedures outlined in the APM in the performance of their duties and responsibilities. Revisions to the manual are ongoing, and the date of the most recent update is indicated after the links to each of the sections. Although the policies are current at the time of publication, the University reserves the right to change its policies and procedures at any time without formal notice. In the unlikely event of a conflict between the APM and the Board of Regents Rules and Regulations, the BOR has precedence. Comments, questions, and revisions may be submitted to Yvonne Realivasquez in the Office of the President.
