Drug, Alcohol, and Campus DUI Cases Policy

The following policy is in effect to notify parents or guardians of students in alcohol and other drug cases in the University of Florida.

  • If a registered student is claimed as a dependent by his or her parents or guardians pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code is found responsible for violating the campus conduct code’s underage consumption, possession, or drug rules twice during the same term or for a third time regardless of the length of time between violations, the student’s parents or guardians may be notified in writing by the Division of Student Affairs.
  • If a registered student is transported to an emergency medical treatment center for drug use or intoxication, the student’s parents or guardians may be notified by a telephone call from the Division of Student Affairs if necessary to protect the health or safety of the student or other individuals.

The Associate Vice President for Student Affairs will be making the telephone calls to the parents or guardians to avoid any conflict with the student disciplinary procedure in which the Dean of Students and the Vice President for Student Affairs hear judicial appeals.
