Safety & Well-Being Amnesty Policy
“I don’t want me or my friend to get in any trouble, but they need help. What should I do?”
If you are on campus and have an emergency, do the right thing and call our University Police Department at 662-915-7234 or dial 911 from anywhere.
Under the Safety and Well-Being Amnesty policy, students or student organizations who seek proactive assistance on behalf of themselves or others experiencing an alcohol or drug related emergency will not be subject to disciplinary action under University Conduct Rules and Regulations.
Students who qualify for amnesty will still be required to meet with a University official. Although students who qualify for amnesty are exempt from the charges and sanctions from the Office of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct, they may still be responsible for completing educational measures in relation to their alcohol or drug consumption, and/or hazing or other unsafe behavior. Educational measures may include, but are not limited to: parental notification if under the age of 21 for alcohol or drug violations, alcohol, drug, or hazing prevention education, or other supportive opportunities.
