Mandated Students for ACTT

A mandated student is defined as a student who is being referred for ACTT services by an agency, organization, legal service, or by a part of Clemson University. Examples of referral sources that are commonly involved with ACTT Program mandated students include Clemson faculty/staff, Office of Community and Ethical Standards (OCES), Dean of Students, CU Housing, Clemson University Municipal Court, PTI, AEP, Community Attorneys, City of Clemson Police Department, and City of Clemson Municipal Court. The ACTT Program desires to assist mandated students with referral source requirements while providing assessment, prevention, intervention, and treatment to the student in order to prevent alcohol and other drug(s) related problems from occurring in the future.

Mandated students are charged a $75 processing fee that is paid at the Redfern Health Center Pharmacy. If a student does not pay the fee by semester's end, the fee will be transferred to the student's University bill.

How to access the ACTT Program

In order for a mandated student to access services, their referral source must complete the ACTT Referral Fax Cover with Checklist, ACTT Student Agreement & Referral Form, and Authorization for Release of Confidential Information (ACTT specific). We ask that the referral source fax this information to our office at 864-656-0760 prior to the student's first appointment and that the student bring a copy of the completed ACTT Student Agreement & Referral Form, the completed Authorization for Release of Confidential Information (ACTT specific), and any other information provided to them by their referral source to their first appointment.

Once a mandated student has been referred by their referral source the student will call CAPS at 864-656-2451 to schedule their ACTT assessment. Students must provide the following information when calling to make their appointment: full name, XID number, birthdate, and telephone number where a voice mail can be left. Should a student have to leave a voice mail for a CAPS staff member, CAPS will contact the student within two (2) business days to schedule the ACTT assessment. It is the student’s responsibility to contact CAPS again after two business days if they have not spoken with a CAPS staff member. A mandated student will be viewed as non-compliant and their referral source will be notified should two (2) attempts to contact the student at any time fail.

What to expect at my first appointment

We encourage students to arrive thirty (30) minutes prior to their scheduled appointment time in order to complete necessary intake information, questionnaires, and surveys. We request that students bring a laptop or other Wi-Fi enabled device to complete this information.  Again, mandated students are expected to bring copies of the completed ACTT Student Agreement & Referral Form, the completed Authorization for Release of Confidential Information (ACTT specific), and any other information provided to them by their referral source to their ACTT assessment appointment.

At the time of the assessment, the student will meet with a qualified clinician who will listen to the student’s presenting concerns and obtain information from the student to determine if services are needed. If the clinician feels the student meets criteria for services, recommendations will be made and may include individual counseling and/or group counseling. If the clinician does not feel a recommendation for services is appropriate they can assist the student with other resources on/off campus to help them with their presenting issue. If the clinician feels that there are no recommendations based on the assessment, the referral source will be notified of the client’s completion of the ACTT program.

While the ACTT program honors a mandated student’s rights to comply with the treatment recommendations, only mandated students who complete all treatment recommendations will be sent a letter of completion of the ACTT program to their referral source. If a mandated student chooses not to follow the recommendations their referral source will be notified of their non-compliance regarding the treatment recommendations. We respect mandated students’ rights to confidentiality and will only disclose information with the student’s consent obtained from the Authorization for Release of Confidential Information (ACTT specific).
