Campus Carry Information

The University System of Georgia has issued guidelines on the new House Bill 280, commonly referred to as the "campus carry" law, which are available here: http://www.usg.edu/news/release/guidelines_for_the_implementation_of_house_bill_280

 
Under the new law, and with a few exceptions, properly licensed individuals may carry concealed handguns in public university classes if they are conducted in buildings and facilities not otherwise exempt from the new law. Licensed carriers may not carry handguns to classes in which high school students are enrolled. It is a misdemeanor for a licensed carrier to possess a weapon in an area that is exempt under the new law, and it will be the responsibility of those license-holders who choose to carry handguns on campus to know the law and understand where they can go on campus while carrying.
 
It is the responsibility of the student to adhere to USG Guidelines for the implementation of House Bill 280. Failure to abide by the law may also be a violation of the University's student code of conduct.
 
Students or faculty who wish to know which of their courses have high school students enrolled may contact the Office of the Registrar at (706) 542-4040 or reghelp@uga.edu. Legal inquiries regarding the guidelines should be directed to the Office of Legal Affairs at legal@uga.edu.
