2017-2018 Student Handbook
Welcome to the LeTourneau University Student Handbook!
The LeTourneau University Student Handbook contains important information for all undergraduate students and residential graduate students enrolled in classes on our Longview campus. The handbook provides a “map” of campus services, guidance on student conduct, and disciplinary processes. Students are responsible to read and abide by the policies and university standards contained in this document.
While the policies and standards outlined in the handbook provide students an effective set of guidelines for personal conduct, the University retains the right to enact additional policies and regulations, correct errors, or to modify existing policies as it determines. Any policy or regulation updates will be made to the document online at www.letu.edu/studenthandbook. New or modified policies are effective immediately, unless otherwise noted. This handbook supersedes and replaces all previously published and/or online versions of the LeTourneau University Student Handbook.
ABOUT THE STUDENT HANDBOOK
This website contains the codes, rules, regulations, and policies which establish the official parameters for student life at LeTourneau University. These standards have been formulated as appropriate by the President’s Cabinet, the Student Life Committee and department, and the administrative officers of the University. The guidelines and regulations contained in the LeTourneau University Student Handbook are binding for all LeTourneau University students enrolled in a Residential [on-ground degree program] undergraduate or graduate program, as well as all Global [online degree program] students who reside on campus. It is the students’ responsibility to be aware of these expectations and conduct themselves accordingly as members of the LeTourneau community. Adherence to the handbook is expected of LeTourneau University students wherever they may be, for the duration of their enrollment at the University (including semester and holiday breaks).
In those years that the Student Handbook is scheduled for major revision, the Office of Student Life will make every effort to identify to the Student Life Committee and the Executive Council of Student Government those policies under consideration for revision in the next edition of the Handbook. Any student or student organization wishing to provide comment on policies and/or procedures in the Handbook is encouraged to submit such comments to Student Government representatives, in particular to members of the Campus Life Council. The student body president chairs the Campus Life Council.
