DWI and Alcohol Awareness Class

Boynton's DWI and Alcohol Awareness class is designed for students who have received a DWI or underage drinking citation. This class, along with any recommended counseling, generally fulfills probationary requirements.

Throughout the class, participants will discuss a variety of issues, including how alcohol affects the body and driving performance, levels of alcohol consumption, consequences of alcohol misuse and abuse, strategies to make healthier decisions, and what factors into a person's decision to drink.

Classes range from four to 10 participants and consist of students from the University of Minnesota and other colleges and universities. The class is usually offered twice a semester.

At the beginning of the class, participants will be asked to complete a Release of Information form that asks for the name and address of the individual who needs to be notified about their participation in the class. Only the person identified will be notified of their participation.

Cost of the class ranges from $65 to $95 depending on your University of Minnesota student status. Payment must be made prior to attending the class. The facilitator will ask to see the payment receipt. For more information, call 612-625-1940. To sign up, call 612-625-3222.

Students are often referred to participate in a Health Promotion Consultation following a violation of the University's alcohol and drug policy. Students are welcome to schedule a Health Promotion Consultation if they have any concerns regarding their chemical health and/or want to further explore their chemical health.
