4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I wouldn't say there are too many issues with campus strictness.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I haven't seen anything crazy. Had a problem with a lab partner bailing on the group. The TA wanted u to help her out, went to the actual teacher/ department head and she told us not to help (which was what we wanted to do).

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The strictness of the campus security is in most cases is lieniant otherwise it is very strict

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: My school campus is strict for all the right reasons. Most of their strictness is meant to keep all students safe and comfortable around campus. Although my campus strictness is a bit high, it does not mean that students do not have fun at UTEP. Faculty and staff are very friendly and respectful to everyone and they will only be strict if it is necessary. One thing they do focus on staying strict about is student academics though. However, they are very lenient once the issue has been addressed, as long as academics are at a good standing.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The campus policies do not affect me directly. If you are a responsible student it is not possible for you to have problems with the police or with the administration. When it comes to student confidentiality and classroom safety, you have the certainty that you are in good hands.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The University is not very demanding with rules around campus, with students driving through campus with ease. However, the campus police do not tolerate unauthorized vehicles on campus and issue fines to students that do not follow regulations. Alcohol on campus is regulated very well at UTEP, only peeking out when students have a case of orange fever and it's time to tailgate for football season. Besides this time of the school year, UTEP does not have any obscene dilemmas with controlling drug problems on campus.

UTEP does have a solid grip on attendance. Students that miss more than five days of class face a deduction of a letter grade on their final grade. Anything surpassing the average absence will result in an automatic failure, with students receiving an F in the specific course. When it comes to campus housing, visitors are only able to access the premises if they know someone living in the dormitory. The doors that allow access into the dormitory are locked by a magnet that may only be unlocked by residents. Overall, campus police are extremely helpful around campus, but they are always on the lookout for anyone coloring outside the lines.
