Drugs, Alcohol and Weapons on Campus

The University enforces all state laws regarding the possession, use, and sale of alcoholic beverages, including those prohibiting the consumption of alcoholic beverage to persons under the age of 21.

The University's Alcohol Policy is available for review as part of the SWOSU Drug Free Workplace document available in Human Resources and on the office’s website. It is also located on the Campus Police’s website, in the Faculty Handbook, and in the Student Handbook.

SWOSU Campus Security enforces all state and federal laws concerning illegal drugs, and will apprehend anyone found in possession of, using, or selling drugs. Students may additionally be charged under any existing University student disciplinary code.

In accordance with state law, no one other than a commissioned law enforcement officer may carry firearms on campus.

Although “permit-less carry” will be in effect as of November 1, 2019, Oklahoma statute states that any firearms, machetes, blackjacks, loaded canes, hand chains, or metal knuckles are not permitted on university property, nor may they be removed from a vehicle without the prior consent of the university president while the vehicle is on university property. The university may notify the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation of any violation as well as take administrative action against any student found to be in violation.
