Referral Process to PREP, the Personal Responsibility Education Program

Following a First Infraction

  1. The Dean of Students Office will contact Health, Counseling and Student Wellness to provide the Prevention Coordinator with referred students' names for reporting student compliance. 
  2. The referring office will provide the student with information explaining the referral process, fees, class times, deadlines, and contact information. 
  3. The student will be notified by letter as to the PREP session he/she is to attend.
    • There is a fee for the class which will be applied to the student's account. Non-attendance will result in additional fees.
    • Classes run from 2 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. Any student arriving after 2 p.m. is required to reschedule for the next alcohol education session. Students will not be admitted into the classroom after 2 p.m.
    • A compliance report will be sent to the appropriate office upon completion of all requirements.

Following a Second Infraction

  1. The referring office will notify the Prevention Coordinator and the student will be instructed to arrange a mandated assessment.  During the initial intake session, the student will be administered the SASSI-3 (Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory), which provides a decision rule regarding the likelihood of a substance use disorder.
  2. The results of the SASSI-3 will be discussed with the student at a second appointment.  This information will allow the Prevention Coordinator to make any necessary recommendations and/or referrals for substance abuse treatment.

Classes are run by  Alcohol and other Drug Clinician
