Sanctions for Alcohol Policy Violations

Students in violation of the Hendrix College Alcohol Policy will be subject to a number of possible conduct sanctions listed below. Additional conduct measures not appearing in the listings below may be imposed as warranted at the discretion of the conduct hearing body through which the violation is processed. Details of the conduct disposition of complaints are found in the conduct process section of the handbook. Note that the offense count (First Offense, Minor Violation; Second Offense, Minor Violation) applies to the student’s entire Hendrix career – the count does not begin anew each fall semester. In all cases involving fines, the entry will read as an “Alcohol Policy Violation” on the individual’s bill from the College. In all cases involving Parent/Guardian Notification, the College will follow the same privacy policy used for releasing grades and other academic information. In all complaints involving Suspension, readmission will be contingent upon successful completion of treatment.
