Conviction for Possession or Sale of Illegal Drugs

A conviction for any offense involving the possession or sale of illegal drugs during a period of enrollment for which you receive Title IV federal student aid may result in the loss of future financial aid eligibility. If you are convicted of possessing or selling drugs after you submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you must notify DFA immediately.

Incarceration limits the federal student aid funds a student is eligible to receive. Any student incarcerated during a period of enrollment must notify the Division of Financial Aid.

For possession of a controlled substance, the period of ineligibility

  • First conviction: 1 year after date of conviction
  • Second conviction: 2 years after date of conviction
  • Third conviction: Indefinite

A conviction that is reversed, set aside, or removed from the students record is not considered for purposes of this section, nor is a conviction from a juvenile proceeding.

For sale of a controlled substance, the period of ineligibility

  • First conviction: 2 years after date of conviction
  • Second conviction: Indefinite

Rehabilitation

If a student successfully completes a drug rehabilitation program as described below, after the student's most recent drug conviction, the student can regain eligibility on the date the student successfully completes the program.

Requirements of a satisfactory drug rehabilitation program:

  • includes at least two unannounced drug tests; and
  • has received or is qualified to receive funds directly or indirectly under a Federal, State, or local government program
  • is administered or registered by a Federal, State, or local government agency or court;
  • has received or is qualified to receive payment directly or indirectly from a Federally- or State-licensed insurance company; or
  • is administered or recognized by a Federally- or State-licensed hospital, health clinic, or medical doctor.
