Subject: Bryn Mawr Consumer Information & Drug and Alcohol Policies
September 22, 2017
As we begin a new academic year and time together in community, I write to remind you of a few important policies that guide life on campus and resources available as you live and work at Bryn Mawr.
The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) of 2008, which reauthorized the Higher Education Act of 1965, asks Bryn Mawr to make available to enrolled students a number of consumer notices and disclosures. These disclosures provide information about some of the College’s policies and practices, including the topics listed below. You may find more information about these notices and disclosures on the College’s Consumer Information webpage at https://www.brynmawr.edu/consumer-information. Emily Espenshade (firstname.lastname@example.org) will provide paper copies of a disclosure if requested; you can also print copies from the webpage above.
Academics, including information regarding the College’s academic programs, facilities, faculty, accreditation, privacy of student records, transfer of credit policies, study abroad, textbooks, and copyright and file-sharing; Tuition, Costs, and Financial Aid, including the cost of attendance, withdrawal and refund policies, financial aid programs (eligibility requirements and criteria, forms, policies, procedures, standards for maintaining aid, disbursements, and repayments), and exit counseling information; Student Life and Campus Safety, including resources for students with disabilities, the diversity of the student body, voter registration, Constitution Day, the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report and our Drug & Alcohol Prevention Program (DAAPP); and Student Success and Outcomes, including retention rates, graduation rates, and the postgraduate placement and education of our graduates.
Bryn Mawr complies with the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations by notifying annually all community members of the College’s Drug and Alcohol Prevention Program (DAAPP). These policies are contained within the student, faculty and staff handbooks, respectively, as well as on our Drug and Alcohol Prevention Program (DAAPP) webpage (http://www.brynmawr.edu/daapp). The DAAPP includes Bryn Mawr’s policies regarding the use of alcohol and other drugs, with which each community member must be familiar and comply.
I hope you find these resources helpful and I look forward to a healthy and safe year together.
With best wishes,
