Responding to Misconduct Charges

OASIS Phase 1

While most cases of personal misconduct are referred to the Office of Student Ethics for adjudication through the Campus Judicial System, cases involving first-time, minor alcohol incidents are handled differently. Indiana University is committed to helping students overcome alcohol abuse. For this reason, IU has created a specialized, alternative program that allows students to resolve some of their first-time alcohol-related incidents outside of the Campus Judicial Process.

OASIS Journey Program: Phase 1

Phase I of the OASIS Journey Program allows students who have been involved in minor alcohol related incidents to review the situation, rethink their actions, and plan for a future free of code violations.

Should you successfully complete Phase I and not violate any other drug or alcohol-related policies for the duration of your tenure at Indiana University, there will not be a judicial record of this incident kept by Indiana University.

How do I know if I qualify for Phase I?

If you qualify for this program, you will be notified by email. In order to qualify for the deleted record option, you must successfully complete all requirements of Phase I.  These include, but are not limited to, taking responsibility for the charges and attending an initial screening (other requirements should be listed in your notification letter).

Failure to appear for, reschedule or cancel your screening will result in the loss of the opportunity to enter the program, and your case will be referred to the Campus Judicial Process.  Should this occur, you may be subject to an additional charge for failure to comply with the request of a university official.

Does completing Phase I resolve county court charges?

No. Phase I does not replace any requirements that you may have with the county court system.

What if I’m not responsible for the charges?

If you are not responsible for any of the alleged charges and want a judicial hearing instead, you may opt out of Phase I by following the instructions in your notification letter.

Before you request a hearing, review the appropriate sections of the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct and/or the Residence Hall Rules and Regulations for complete details regarding your charges. Should you be found responsible in the judicial hearing, you will receive an automatic mandatory referral back to OASIS along with a judicial record.
