Adjudication of Violations of the Student Alcohol Policy

Adjudication of the College alcohol policy is informed by the College's primary concern for the health and safety of the College community. First-time violations of the alcohol policy will result in a referral to Dartmouth's educational and medical intervention programs in lieu of a disciplinary sanction. Students must participate in these programs to avoid a disciplinary sanction. In addition, students are encouraged to talk with their class dean, counselors, and/ or alcohol educators about the role alcohol is playing in their life at Dartmouth.

Dartmouth imposes disciplinary sanctions for violations of the alcohol policy as a means to educate students and deter behavior that negatively impacts the individual or the community. If a student fails to complete the education/medical program, repeatedly violates the alcohol policy, or violates other college policies, he or she will be subject to disciplinary sanctions that usually include compliance with the education/medical program. Sanctions increase in severity with repeated offenses and serious misconduct.

NOTE: The Good Samaritan Policy applies to any alcohol policy offense, regardless of the student's previous disciplinary history. Students who wish to avoid sanctions as a result of the Good Samaritan Policy must participate in the educational/medical program to be eligible for the Good Samaritan exemption.
