The Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations (EDGAR Part 86) require that, as a condition of receiving funds or any other form of financial assistance under any federal program, an institution of higher education (IHE), such as Camden County College, must certify that it has adopted and implemented a program “to prevent the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees” both on the institution’s premises and as part of any of its activities.
An institution of higher education (IHE), such as Camden County College, that complies with the regulations is required do the following:
- Provide annual written notification to all employees, and to all students who are taking one or more classes for any type of academic credit except for continuing education units, regardless of the length of the student’s program of study, of:
- Standards of conduct that clearly prohibit, at a minimum, the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees.
- A list of applicable legal sanctions under federal, state, or local laws for the unlawful possession or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol.
- A description of the health risks associated with the abuse of alcohol or use of illicit drugs.
- A list of drug and alcohol programs (counseling, treatment, rehabilitation, and re-entry) that are available to employees or students.
