Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act

The Student-Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act was enacted in 1990 by federal law. The law requires institutions that receive student aid assistance to prepare and distribute an Annual Security Report (Campus Watch). The Campus Watch for Texas State University at San Marcos and Round Rock campuses includes descriptions of campus crime prevention programs, procedures for reporting crimes and information about the number and frequency of crimes reported to the University Police Department for the last three years. It also provides Texas State’s policies for campus security and law enforcement related to sexual offenses, liquor law violations, and controlled substance offenses. In addition to publishing crime statistics, the act requires the institution to provide timely warnings to the campus community of certain crimes reported to the University Police Department or local law enforcement which may be considered a threat to the campus community. The Campus Watch is available on the Texas State website at, in the offices of Undergraduate Admissions, The Graduate College, Human Resources, and the University Police Department.
