Medical Amnesty Program

The health, safety and welfare of students and the University community are of the utmost importance at George Mason University (Mason). As a result, the University provides an “amnesty” program as an effort to support students who experience a first alcohol related situation, and the responsible student(s) who seek assistance for them. “Amnesty” allows students who proactively exhibit responsible behavior the opportunity for educational, non-disciplinary intervention for the incident.
