  • 2. Housing Policy

    In support of the Strategic Plan of Angelo State University, the University requires students to reside on campus their first year. If, at the end of their first year, they have not completed 30 credit hours, they will be required to reside on campus an additional year. .Institutional research suggests that students who live on campus are significantly more inclined to remain in college and achieve higher GPA’s in comparison to students living off campus. Compliance with the University housing policy is a condition of enrollment, as set forth in the Angelo State University Student Handbook and the Undergraduate and Graduate Catalog and approved by the Board of Regents.
