Remedial Alcohol Awareness Education is offered by the Student Wellness Center for students who are convicted by the local courts, Helena City and Lewis and Clark County. There is a $100.00 fee for this education program, which will be billed to student accounts.
This opportunity is being offered through the Smart Choices: Responsible Drinking for Life program that has alcohol abuse prevention education and early intervention for abusers as two of its primary goals.
Effective October 2005, all persons convicted of Underage in Possession of Alcohol (Montana Code 45-5-624) are mandated to attend a substance abuse information course (6 hours in length). Prior to October 2005 only persons convicted of Minor in Possession of Alcohol (under18 years of age) were required to participate in the substance abuse information course.
The Alcohol Awareness Education Program at Carroll requires attendance and participation in two group educational meetings using the curriculum from "Choices About AlcoholTM" and successful completion with a passing grade of 75% of the interactive Internet program "AlcoholEdu for Sanctions" between the two meetings. The meetings are on Thursdays in Classroom GU007 (Basement of Guadalupe Hall) from 12:30-1:50 PM. Be sure to allow enough time to complete the program based upon deadlines assigned to you by the Courts or by the College.
