College Drug and Alcohol Policy for Students

In accordance with the Drug-Free Schools and Campus Regulations, PCCUA prohibits the possession, sale, distribution, and/ or use of illicit drugs or alcohol on campus or at college-sponsored activities off campus.

Violation(s) of this policy will result in appropriate discipline including warning, probation, suspension, or expulsion. Students are also subject to applicable legal sanctions, which may include fines and/or imprisonment, for use of illicit drugs or illegal use of alcohol. A criminal conviction under such laws shall not preclude the imposition of appropriate sanctions under applicable college policies and procedures that are consistent with such laws. Successful completion of an appropriate rehabilitation program may be grounds for readmission.

The College will implement requirements of the Drug-Free Schools and Campus Regulations to inform students of the health risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol. The Vice Chancellor for Student Services and Registrar shall provide confidential referral to agencies in the community offering rehabilitation therapy and counseling for students suffering from drug or alcohol abuse.
