Policies and Point System

Pennsylvania Law and SU Code of Conduct

Shippensburg University upholds all federal, state, and local laws as well as their own policies and procedures for alcohol and other drugs. These policies can be found beginning on page 109 of the Swataney Student Handbook. The Shippensburg University community is encouraged to read and become familiar with this section.

SU Alcohol and Other Drug Point System

The SU AOD Point System  was developed to provide clarity around how the University responds when students are involved in alcohol and/or other drug-related issues.  Each judicial violation includes “points,” which refer to the level of risk a specific violation carries toward student success and safety.  The more points a student has the more at risk they are for experiencing alcohol or other drug-related harm. The points DO ACCUMULATE if a student receives more than one violation. Students receive services through the Connection Alcohol and Other Drug Program which are designed to help identify any additional risk factors that could jeopardize their college success.  

SU Drug-Free Policy

Drug-Free Campus Policy

Medical Amnesty Policy

At Shippensburg University, students’ safety is paramount. If a student has been drinking but suspects that a friend is in danger or suffering from alcohol poisoning, a student can call for help without fear of legal consequences (immunity from prosecution) due to our Medical Amnesty policy and the PA Medical Amnesty Law.
