judicial process 101
Judicial Process 101
  • If a student is charged with a violation of the Student Conduct Code, they go through the judicial process with through the Office of Judicial Affairs.
  • The student will receive a letter informing them of what they have been charged with and requesting that they set up a meeting.
  • Parents should instruct the student to go to the meeting…we will share all information we have with them and get their side of the story.
  • After all of the information is on the table, students may choose to take responsibility for the violation or go to the formal hearing process.
  • All sanctions are educational in nature (whenever possible). We teach students civic and social responsibility.
alcoholic beverages
Alcoholic Beverages

It is a violation of the Student Conduct Code for students under the age of 21 to consume any type of alcoholic beverage.

Parents have more influence over responsible decision making than we do, so it is encouraged that parents discuss these issues in depth with their children.

Georgia Southern has a 3 strike alcohol policy. Please refer to the Student Conduct Code or the 3 strike alcohol policy which can be found by clicking here.

Students over 21 are urged to be responsible when consuming alcoholic beverages. Remember, it is against the law to drink and drive and to provide alcoholic beverages to minors.
