Will my parents be informed I had to take an alcohol and/or drug sanction education class?
  • The Office of Student Conduct, Residential Life staff and Student Health Services staff does not initiate contact with parents regarding a student’s involvement in alcohol or drugs.
    • A parent disclosure form (Alcohol and Drug Disclosure Release of Information Form), not to be confused with a parent notification form, is available for student’s to sign. Parents and students are told about the Alcohol and Drug Release of Information Form at Orientation.
    • The Alcohol and Drug Disclosure Release of Information Form is available in the Office of Student Conduct, Residential Life and Student Health Services.
      • The Alcohol and Drug Disclosure Release of Information Form is a disclosure of records form intended to allow parents or other designated party to access information from the conduct file related only to alcohol and other drug violations in accordance with the Minnesota Government Data Practices Act.
      • With a student’s signature on an Alcohol and Drug Disclosure Release of Information Form parents or other designated party can communicate with the Director of Student Conduct and Associate Director of Residential Life regarding the student conduct file related only to Alcohol and Other drug violations.
What can you tell my parents if they ask questions regarding alcohol and/or drug sanction education classes?
  • If a parent contacts the Office of Student Conduct or Residential Life unless an Alcohol and Drug Disclosure Release of Information Form is signed by the student no information will be relayed to parents.
  • If a parent contacts the Student Health Services office unless an SHS Authorization for Disclosure of Health Information form is signed by the student no information will be relayed to parents.
  • However, if a parent contacts Student Health Services inquiring why there is a $75 Health Education Fee on their child's account, public information may be shared that typically a $75 Health Education Fee charged to a student account is the result of being required to complete an alcohol and/or drug education sanction program. 
Will my alcohol and/or drug sanction information be on my background check?
  • Potential employers must first obtain a written release of information from the student. Upon receipt of the release of information, the Office of Student Affairs will disclose the information requested on the release form.
    • That typically includes a date and description of an incident, the sanctions assigned, and whether or not the student completed the sanction in a timely manner.
    • Common parties who may request a background check may be, but are not limited to future employers, transfer institutions, graduate schools, licensing boards, the military and rental managers deciding whether or not to lease to a student.
