Federal Drug Policy for Financial Aid Recipients

  • Students who are convicted of drug possession or drug (selling) distribution while they are enrolled and receiving financial aid will automatically be disqualified to receive federal financial aid.

    The period of ineligibility for federal financial aid is as follows:

                                        Possession of Illegal Drugs                            Sale of Illegal Drugs

    1st Offense                    1 year from date of conviction                       2 years from date of conviction

    2nd Offense                   2 years from date of conviction                     indefinite period of time

    3+ offenses                  indefinite period of time

    The student self-reports this information when they complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
