In the Fall of 1998, the law that prohibited colleges and universities from releasing disciplinary
records of students 18 years of age or older without their consent was amended. As a result,
public colleges and universities were given the option of informing parents/guardians of alcohol
and drug offenses committed by their students who are under 21 years of age.
Hocking College has since adopted the Drug and Alcohol Parental/Guardian Notification
• 1st Alcohol violations of the Hocking College Student Code of Conduct will be
handled within the Department of Campus Judiciaries and require parental
• 1st Drug violations of the Hocking College Student Code of Conduct, regardless of
how minor, will require parental notification.
*Please Note: Residence Hall violations and Offâ€Campus violations are included as part of a
student’s Judicial Record.
