Drug Law Violations
A state or federal drug conviction can disqualify a student from receiving financial aid. Financial aid recipients are only held accountable for convictions that occurred during a period of enrollment. Also, a conviction that was reversed, set aside, or removed from the student's record doesn't count, nor do juvenile convictions, unless the student was tried as an adult.
The period of financial aid ineligibility for a drug possession or sale conviction is as follows:
For possession of illegal drugs
First offense: one year from date of conviction
Second offense: two years from date of conviction
Three or more offenses: indefinite period
For sale of illegal drugs (including conspiring to sell drugs)
First offense: two years from date of conviction
Second offense: permanent ineligibility
If a student is convicted of both possessing and selling illegal drugs, he or she will be disqualified for the longer period of ineligibility.
