Impact of Drug Conviction on Financial Aid

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 the Division of Financial Aid immediately.

If a student successfully completes a drug rehabilitation program, the student may regain federal student aid eligibility on the date the program is successfully completed. For information on how a drug conviction impacts your financial aid, complete the Student Aid Eligibility Worksheet on the Federal Student Aid website. To report a drug conviction contact the Division of Financial Aid.
