Parental Notification Policy

University of Saint Francis is concerned about students who improperly use alcohol and other drugs and the effects such use may have on their health, academic success, interpersonal relationships and, ultimately, their future.

University of Saint Francis alcohol policy prohibits possession and/or consumption of alcohol on campus by students, employees, or guests unless prior approval has been granted. When the University of Saint Francis sponsors an event where alcohol is served or sold, all participants must be of legal age (21 years) as governed by the laws of the state of Indiana. Possession of drug paraphernalia and the use, manufacture, sale, or distribution of illegal drugs, whether on or off campus, by any student is also prohibited. In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the Vice President for Student Affairs (or designee) reserves the right to notify the parents/guardians of students under 21 years of age, and the parents/guardians of dependent students, regardless of age, of any incident in which the student is found responsible for violating the University of Saint Francis alcohol and drug policy.
