Drug Offenses and Financial Aid

The Higher Education Opportunity Act requires all colleges and universities to notify all students, even those who are not receiving financial aid, about the financial aid implications of drug convictions. Under federal law, anyone convicted of a drug offense while receiving federal financial aid will lose their eligibility. This communication is to make you aware of the consequences for drug convictions; we are not implying or assuming any prior drug conviction or offense.

 

Here’s a quick guide to the regulations:

 

Those convicted of possessing illegal drugs will lose financial aid eligibility for:

  • First offense: 1 year from date of conviction
  • Second offense: 2 years from date of conviction
  • Third offense: indefinitely

 

Those convicted of selling illegal drugs will lose financial aid eligibility for:

  • First offense: 2 years from date of conviction
  • Second offense: indefinitely

 

For more information, review the FAFSA rules on financial aid eligibility.

 

If you have questions about this federal financial aid policy, speak with a Financial Aid Counselor at New River Community and Technical College.
