Assignment Policies

Welcome to Community Living!

The Assignment Policies is an important document with which to be familiar.

Residence Life is a vital part of the Tarleton State University community. By providing an atmosphere conducive to meeting the academic, social, and personal needs of residential students, Residence Life supports the educational goals of the University. This is evident in our mission statement which states the following:

Residence Life seeks to foster authentic communities that engage and empower residents to value learning, citizenship and diversity through faculty and peer engagement.

The Residence Hall Directors (RHD's) and Residential Leaders (RL's) living in university housing serve as valuable resources regarding college life. The residential students that make up our residence hall advisors (RHA) are members of a hall leadership team who provide assistance by serving as a forum for students and by planning activities for residents.

Housing Policy

The Tarleton State University housing policy is based on the knowledge that living on-campus can provide both educational and social opportunities important to the success of college students. Research shows that compared to those living elsewhere, students living in residence halls are more involved in academic and extracurricular activities. Residents also tend to earn a higher grade point average, exceed predicted levels of learning and personal development, and more frequently complete their college education within a four to five year period.

Residing on-campus creates an environment where students are more successful; therefore, Tarleton supports a live-on requirement of:

Two Academic Years for:

  • all "First Time in College" students who are under 21 years of age, prior to the start of his/her first registered semester
  • all "Transfer" students who are under 21 years of age with less than 12 (twelve) credit hours, prior to the start of his/her registered semester

One Academic Year for:

  • all "Transfer" students who are under 21 years of age with 12 (twelve) credit hours or more and less than 60 (sixty) credit hours, prior to the start of his/her registered semester
