Drug and Alcohol Abuse Policy and Prevention Plan
As an institution that participates in the Federal Student Financial Aid Program, HCC must provide information to students, faculty and staff to prevent drug and alcohol abuse. This information is required by the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989. Information about programming opportunities, assistance programs available to students and employees with suspected drug or alcohol problems and the possible repercussions of violating state and institutional drug and alcohol policies is available in the annual HCC Student Catalog/Handbook.
Notice of Federal Student Financial Aid Penalties for Drug Law Violations
The Higher Education Act of 1965 as amended (HEA) suspends aid eligibility for students who have been convicted under federal or state law of the sale or possession of drugs, if the offense occurred during a period of enrollment for which the student was receiving federal student aid (grants, loans, and/or work-study). If you have a conviction(s) for these offenses, call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243) or click here to complete the "Student Aid Eligibility Worksheet"to find out how this law applies to you.
If you have lost federal student aid eligibility due to a drug conviction, you can regain eligibility if you pass two unannounced drug tests conducted by a drug rehabilitation program that complies with criteria established by the U.S. Department of Education.
