Students who have been mandated to any and/or all of these program must adhere to the following rules:
- How to register: Register for your class on-line by clicking the "Registration" link associated with the "Mandated Student" page's drop-down menu. In order to pay, you must go to room 513 of Patterson Office Tower with cash or a check.
- Arrive on time. Those who are more than ten minutes late will have to reschedule and pay the full price to reschedule.
- If you must reschedule your session, we must be notified 48 hours in advance of the date of your session. Failure to do so will result in the assessment of the full fee. ($100 or $200). Contact Glenna Arthurs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Any disrespect of your peers or the instructors will not be tolerated and you may be removed from the class. If this happens, you must reschedule and will likely have to visit with our Associate Dean of Students for Judicial Affairs.
- Students who text or sleep may be removed from the session and may be subject to the reassessment of a fine.
- Students must come to our sessions completely sober.
- Fees are associated with repeat violations of all substance policies. (EXAMPLE: John is found in violation of the alcohol policy in September and pays $100 fee. John is found in violation of the drug policy in March and must pay a $200 fee.)
Those who have been found in violation of our institutional alcohol policy must complete one or all of the educational requirements listed below. The requirement will be determined by the student's hearing officer or referring administrator.
Low-Level Violations (First Offense)
- $100 fee
- AlcoholEdu Sanction – This is an extension of the AlcoholEdu program that all incoming freshmen are required to take. Students will go more in depth on their personal alcohol usage through reflections. They will also complete anonymous assessments regarding their own alcohol use and will receive personal feedback. This must be completed before students can register for "Coach."
- Coach – This program is a small-group discussion that is focused upon the development of goal-setting and decision-making skills. The "coach" is a trained facilitator who is there to provide students with information and support through discussion and dialogue. This is not a classroom setting and is not a lecture. Participation is encouraged and expected.
Higher-Level Offenses and Second-Time Policy Violations
- $100 fee for 1st time, $200 fee for repeat violators
- Prime - Students who are referred to this program are those who either have had previous alcohol policy violations or those whose violations need special attention. Those students must take Prime, online educational program that is similar to the AlcoholEdu requirement for freshmen.
In order to complete this assignment after paying the registration fee, students must do the following:
- Go to: http://sanctions.alcoholedu.com
- Under LoginID, type S157085S
- Create a new user name and password.
- Complete the program in its entirety and score at least 85% on the final exam.
**Students who are mandated by other states to complete alcohol education programs by the court may be able to utilize Prime to meet that requirement. Always check with your court representative.
Drug and Tobacco Violations
- $100 fee first-time violators, $200 fee for repeat violators
- Drug violations: Students who are in violation of the institutional drug policy will have to complete the Drug Education Class. This is a small-group discussion similar to the Coach session.
