Alcohol and Drug Prevention

Cabarrus College and clinical and fieldwork affiliates must be free from alcohol, illegal drug use and other substances which may or may not adversely affect performance.During orientation, students are presented with information about the alcohol and drug prevention program which includes strict policies regarding drug and alcohol use and charges, convictions and sanctions all which may affect enrollment and future licensure status if violations are discovered.

Student Affairs ensures that an alcohol and drug prevention program is in place at Cabarrus College in accordance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 (Public Law 101-690) and the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act (Public Law 101-226). As a condition of pre-enrollment, students must provide a negative drug screen from a certified lab (within 30 days) prior to the first day of the semester. Students enrolling in a clinical program will set up an appointment with Employee Health; as part of this appointment a drug screening will be completed. Non-clinical students will utilize other certified labs. Students may be subject to random drug screenings.

Any student who is charged with, or convicted of, a felony or any misdemeanor involving drugs or DWI shall immediately report such charge or conviction to the Provost.

Students are advised of the health risks associated with the use of drugs and alcohol and federal and state laws associated with usage. Students are required to sign the student acknowledgement form which indicates receipt and understanding of the policies related to a drug and alcohol free campus. The financial aid department also requires that all students sign a form which outlines the consequences of convictions, possession, and sale of illegal drugs in order to meet Federal Student Aid eligibility requirements.

More details are available by review the sections regarding the alcohol and drug prevention program and the North Carolina state laws.
