Office of Student Conduct
Academic Integrity and Classroom Civility
The University of Minnesota Duluth is committed to providing an environment that promotes student learning and success. We are concerned about the safety and well-being of our students and recognize parents can have a very positive influence on their college student's choices.
Parental notification for students applies to both on- and off-campus violations. Parents may be called and a follow-up letter sent when University officials are aware that a student has been transported to detox or hospital, as this is considered a medical emergency. In addition, parents may be notified when a student receives an underage consumption of alcohol, or drinking and driving, DWI, or if the University is concerned about the student's well-being.
The University is legally entitled to notify parents when students engage in alcohol or drug violations if (1) there is a threat to the health or safety of a student or other individuals, or (2) the student signs a waiver allowing the release of the information, or (3) the University can determine if the student is financially dependent on his/her parents for tax purposes.
