Ever been concerned about a friend's condition after drinking?

Make the call! 607-274-3333

It is imperative that medical help be summoned when a person has engaged in dangerous drinking or drug use.

The IC MAP protects you from college judicial sanctions if the following apply:

  • the student or a friend of the student calls to request medical assistance;
  • no other conduct violations (such as disruptive behavior) were committed by the student during the same incident;
  • the student completes a required educational follow-up in a timely manner;
  • the case has been approved for amnesty by the Office of Judicial Affairs.

A student is eligible for amnesty only once. For more information on the IC M.A.P., visit:
