Off-Campus Programs

While on off-campus programs, Monmouth College Policies as outlined in the Scots Guide are in effect. The program director as an agent of the institution has not only administrative responsibility but also disciplinary authority and may, if he/she deems it necessary, terminate program participation and send a student home (at the student’s expense) for safety or disciplinary reasons.

Students should take special note of the following with regard to alcohol and controlled substances.


The Monmouth College policy regarding alcohol requires students to abide by the laws of the State of Illinois. Therefore, students on off-campus programs are required to abide by the laws governing alcohol in the country of residence and the laws of those countries visited. However, regardless of the local laws, under no circumstances is intoxication permissible. Students can expect that most countries do not tolerate intoxication and should be aware that arrest is possible.

Narcotics and Controlled Substances

Monmouth College policy is clear that the possession, use, abuse, distribution or manufacture of narcotics, dangerous drugs, or hallucinogens is in violation of College policy. This policy is applicable regardless of the laws of other countries where a student may be residing or visiting.
