  • Explosive devices will not be returned even if they are voluntarily disclosed.  All explosive devices will be disposed of accordingly.

In the event a prohibited firearm/weapon or explosive device is found on University property the items will immediately be confiscated, secured and processed according to local/state laws and University policy.
