The University requires that students refrain from the illegal use of drugs and the abuse of addictive substances controlled by law.

Consistent with this policy, the use, possession, manufacture, distribution or sale of illegal drugs or drug paraphernalia is prohibited. Student possession and use of controlled medications legally prescribed on University property is allowed as long as they are kept in their original containers with prescription information available for review.

The misuse, sale, or distribution of prescription medications is prohibited. University rules also forbid the use, possession, distribution or sale of alcohol or tobacco on University. Any use of alcohol, tobacco, or controlled substances that results in a criminal violation, e.g., drunken driving, public nuisance, disorderly conduct, use of these substances by a minor, etc., will be considered a substance abuse violation and dealt with through the University’s formal disciplinary processes, whether or not the student is actually charged with or convicted of a crime by local, state or federal authorities.
