The following excerpt was taken directly from The Official SUNY Oneonta AOD Task Force webpage:
Abuse of alcohol and other drugs can create life-threatening situations that require an immediate response from emergency services personnel and college staff. In all such instances the College expects students to report emergency need for medical attention when it may be required.
Any student who receives emergency medical assistance related to his/her consumption of alcohol or drugs, whether transported to the hospital or not, and any student who seeks emergency medical assistance on behalf of another student experiencing an alcohol or drug related medical emergency will be eligible for amnesty from Alcohol or Drug Use charges under the Code of Student Conduct. The report can be made through any college staff member (e.g., night host, RA) or directly to UPD. To receive amnesty, each student will be required to complete follow-up risk assessment and educational initiatives prescribed by the College and administered by the Counseling Center, and pay for appropriate services (i.e., assigned on-line education modules) consistent with state education law. Failure to complete these activities in a timely fashion will result in restoration of Alcohol or Drug Use charges, and adjudication by a hearing officer. Amnesty will only be extended to students once, regardless of whether a transport occurred. Medical Amnesty will not prevent judicial charges associated with violations of any other section of the Code of Student Conduct (e.g., assault/reckless endangerment, crime, falsification of information, causing or threatening harm, sexual misconduct, theft/possession of stolen property/criminal mischief, weapons, trespassing, misuse/destruction of property, unlawful provision of alcohol or drugs, harassment, and hazing).
In cases where a student receives emergency medical assistance related to his/her consumption of alcohol or drugs two or more times, whether transported or not, the college will initiate risk assessment and judicial charges appropriate to the circumstances. The college reserves the right to exercise discretion in determining amnesty eligibility in extreme cases (e.g., combative behavior, compromising the safety of first responders).
