The University of Saint Francis may provide amnesty to students based on one of the following grounds.
In all cases of amnesty, educational options will be explored, but no conduct proceedings or conduct record will result. Records regarding the provision of amnesty, however, will be maintained.
Abuse of amnesty requests can result in a decision not to extend amnesty to the same person repeatedly.
The University of Saint Francis has a Safe Harbor practice for students. The University of Saint Francis believes that students who have an alcohol or drug abuse and/or substance addiction problem have the right to receive help. If any USF student shares a concern about their own use, addiction, or dependency to the attention of University of Saint Francis officials, a conduct complaint will not be pursued. Please note, Safe Harbor only applies when the student(s) raise the concern outside the threat of drug tests or conduct proceedings and seeks assistance. A written action plan may be used to track cooperation by the student within the Safe Harbor provision. Failure to follow the action plan may nullify the Safe Harbor protection and student conduct processes will be initiated.
