COAS Procedure

The College of Arts and Sciences procedures serve as a guide to academic practices at the college-level. COAS procedures are subject to all applicable laws, rules, and regulations of the federal government, State of Texas, Texas State University System (TSUS), and university-level policy and procedures at Lamar University. These procedures have been developed to ensure compliance with these higher authorities. If there is a conflict between a COAS procedure and a federal, state, TSUS, or LU law, rule, regulation, or policy, the federal, state, TSUS, or LU requirement will take precedence and the COAS procedure will be revised to reflect the higher authority.
