Federal Aid Eligibility and Drug Conviction Policy

A conviction for any offense under any federal or state law involving the possession or sale of illegal drugs during a period of enrollment for which you are receiving Title IV federal student aid (grants, loans and work-study assistance) will result in the loss of eligibility. The time for ineligibility for aid varies based on the type of conviction and the number of times an offense has occurred.

For more information about federal student financial aid penalties for drug law violations, visit the Federal Student Aid website. You can also review the 2020-21 drug conviction worksheet
