All students enrolled at SIUE much comply with the Student Conduct code, as well as the Alcohol and Drug Policies established by the university. Full access to these policies can be found online at:
The use of alcoholic beverages in or on any property owned or controlled by Southern Illinois University Edwardsville is governed by the laws of the State of Illinois and the regulations of the University. The use, sale, delivery, possession, and/or consumption of an alcoholic beverage by anyone under 21 years of age is illegal under both State and Federal laws. Such laws are strictly enforced by the SIUE Police Department. Violators are subject to University disciplinary action, criminal prosecution, fine, and/or imprisonment.
Under both State and Federal laws, the possession of any controlled substance is illegal unless medically prescribed by a licensed physician. It is also illegal under State and Federal laws to manufacture, sell, or distribute any controlled substance unless licensed to do so. Such laws are strictly enforced by the SIUE Police Department. It is also important to note that as of January 1, 2012 the state of Illinois enacted many new laws, including the ban of K2, or synthetic marijuana. Under this new legislation, it is a felony to buy, sell or possess the drug.
University sanctions are independent of other sanctions that may be imposed as a result of civil or criminal prosecution. The sanctions listed may be imposed alone or in any combination. Prior determinations of misconduct under this or other student conduct policies may be considered in the determination of a sanction for a present violation.
Sanctions include: disciplinary reprimand, disciplinary probation, payment for the restoration of property or other costs incurred as a result of student misconduct, restricted access, community service, referral to BASICS/CASICS counseling, or mandated participation in counseling, diagnostic evaluation by a mental health professional other than University staff, restricted course enrollment, university residence probation, university residence transfer or separation, and separation from the University. Separation from the University may be for a specific period of time, an indefinite period of time, or permanent. A decision to permanently separate a student from the University is the responsibility of the Chancellor as provided in the Policies of the Board of Trustees.
As a way to combat the abuse of alcohol and use of illegal substances on campus, all incoming students, including but not limited to, freshmen, transfer, and graduate students, as well as new employees are expected to complete ongoing online alcohol and sexual violence education provided by the university. Online alcohol education will provide students with risk reduction while consuming alcohol, as well as elicit healthy lifestyle changes.
