Medical Amnesty Policy

Medical Amnesty Policy

Medical Amnesty may be applied in certain situations in which students need medical attention in a situation that violates aspects of the Code of Conduct. Discretion for applying Medical Amnesty lies with the Dean of Students’ Office.

Remember, if someone is potentially in danger it is critical that you don’t wait. DON’T WAIT, SAVE A LIFE, MAKE THE CALL.

Students receive Medical Amnesty at the discretion of the Dean of Students’ Office when it is determined that they sought emergency medical attention for themselves or medical assistance was sought for them related to the consumption of alcohol. If Medical Amnesty applies, the student will not be charged with alcohol violations by the Dean of Students or his/her designee, provided that they comply with all conditions applied by the Dean of Students’ Office.
