  • Texas State is committed to the holistic well-being of its students. In an effort to encourage Texas State students to call Emergency 911 in case of a drug or alcohol related medical emergency, a student will be granted amnesty from formal university disciplinary procedures if:

    -The student requested medical assistance in response to the possible alcohol or drug overdose of another person;

    -The student was the “first” person to make a request for medical assistance;

    -The student remained on the scene until medical assistance arrived; and

    -The student cooperated with medical assistance and law enforcement personnel.

    The reporting student will be expected to provide an account of the episode/event to a university official regardless of the amnesty standard being applied
