Events that involve contacting parents
Most academic and personal difficulties—from violations, to problems with physical and mental health, finances, family discord, roommates and relationships—are resolved without the university involving the parents. The vast majority of students handle their new independence with a deep sense of personal responsibility. If, however, a new student faces mental health problems, the University may choose to involve parents. The University will also notify parents of students under the age of 21 who violate laws on the use or possession of alcohol or drugs.
