 Approval Process & Legal Authority


     The International Office is responsible for overseeing the student exchange agreement approval
     process. This office will not normally have responsibility for the administration or
     implementation of agreements; nor will it be responsible for the allocation of any resources in
     the support of agreements. Exchange agreements between the University of Texas at Austin and
     foreign universities are governed by a combination of Texas State law, Texas Higher Education
     Coordinating Board Rules, and the University of Texas at Austin policies. The format of the
     exchange agreements has been prescribed by the UT System Board of Regents. Sample formats
     for the general and program agreements are available upon request. Agreements not using these
     formats would normally have to be approved by the UT Board of Regents.

     activity with the proposed partner of mutual benefit to both institutions? How does this benefit
     UT students, and what is the probability of attaining an appropriate level of reciprocity? If UT
     already has agreements to provide students an opportunity to study in the proposed country or
     site, what new possibilities does this partnerships offer? What are the enhancements/attractions
