Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Information

Part 86, the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations (Education Department General Administrative Regulations [EDGAR]): As a condition of receiving funds or any other form of financial assistance under any federal program, an institution of higher education 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.

The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA) of 1989 — also known as the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Act — requires institutions of higher education to establish drug and alcohol abuse prevention programs for students and employees. In compliance with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989, MacMurray College provides materials that contain information on the five points below to all students and employees annually:

  1. Standards of conduct that clearly prohibit, at a minimum, the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees. (For information on illicit drug use and abuse refer to the National Institute on Drug Abuse webpage.)
  2. A description of the applicable legal sanctions under federal, state, or local law for the unlawful possession or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol.
  3. A description of the health risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol.
  4. A list of drug and alcohol programs (counseling, treatment, rehabilitation, and re-entry) that are available to employees and students.
  5. A clear statement of the disciplinary sanctions students and employees may face for violations of standards of conduct relating to drugs and alcohol.

Students, faculty, and staff may request information about the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act by contacting the Human Resources Office at 217-479-7008 or the Health Services Office at 217-479-7160.

Denial of Federal Aid (20 USC 1091)

Under the Higher Education Act of 1998, students convicted under federal or state law for the sale or possession of drugs will have their federal financial aid eligibility suspended. This includes all federal grants, loans, federal work study programs, and more. Students convicted of drug possession will be ineligible for one year from the date of the conviction of the first offense, two years for the second offense, and indefinitely for the third offense. Students convicted of selling drugs will be ineligible for two years from the date of the first conviction and indefinitely for the second offense. Those who lose eligibility can regain it by successfully completing an approved drug rehabilitation program. For more information refer to the Federal Student Aid webpage.
