Point believes it is important to treat students as the adults they have
become. As members of the learning
community, UW-Stevens Point sends grades and other official university
communications directly to each student.
What they choose to share and discuss with parents or guardians is a
personal and/or family decision.
Point also honors each student’s right to privacy on behavioral matters. There are several notable exceptions to this
policy, however. The university may
choose to contact a parent or guardian:
When a student’s repeated abuse of chemicals is
jeopardizing their own health or that of others.
When repeated efforts to gain compliance with
university alcohol, drug and other behavioral policies have failed and the
student’s status with the university is in question.
When a student’s physical or emotional health
has become threatened or has become potentially dangerous to others, and/or
when the university feels the student may be incapable of making safe healthy
decisions for him/herself.
Contacts with parents or guardians in these
instances will be made by the Dean of Students or his/her designee.
