  1. Stanly Community College does not differentiate between drug users, drug pushers, or sellers. Any faculty, staff, or student, who possesses, uses, sells, gives or in any way transfers a controlled substance to another person on College premises or as part of any College-sponsored activity will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination or expulsion and referral for prosecution.

  2. The term "controlled substance" means any drug listed in 21 CFR Part 1308 and other federal regulations, as well as those listed in Article V, Chapter 90, of the North Carolina General Statutes. Generally, these are drugs which have a high potential for abuse. Such drugs include but are not limited to heroin, marijuana, cocaine, PCP, and “crack.” They also include “legal drugs” which are not prescribed by a licensed physician.

  3. If any faculty, staff, or student is convicted for violating any criminal drug statute while on College premises or as part of any College-sponsored activity, he or she will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination or expulsion. Alternatively, the College may require the student to successfully finish a drug abuse program sponsored by an approved private or governmental institution as a precondition for continued enrollment at the College.

  4. Each faculty, staff, or student is required to inform the College in writing within five days after he or she is convicted for violation of any federal, state, or local criminal drug statute where such violation occurred on College premises or as part of any College-sponsored activity. A conviction means a finding of guilt (including a plea of nolo contendere) or the imposition of a sentence by a judge or jury in any federal or state court.

  5. Convictions of faculty, staff, or student for violating drug laws in the workplace, on College premises, or as part of any College-sponsored activity shall be reported to the appropriate federal agency. Chief Financial Officer must notify the U.S. government agency with which the grant was made within ten days after receiving notice of a violation of a criminal drug statute occurring in the workplace. The College shall take the appropriate disciplinary action with thirty calendar days from receipt of notice. As a condition of further employment on any federal government grant, the law requires all employees to abide by this policy.

  6. Any faculty, staff, or student who unlawfully possesses, uses, sells, or transfers alcoholic beverages to another person while on College premises or as part of any College-sponsored activity will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination or expulsion and referral for prosecution.

  7. If a faculty, staff, or student is convicted of violating any alcoholic beverage control statute while on College premises or as part of any College-sponsored activity, he or she will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination or expulsion. Alternatively, the  College may require the student to successfully finish an alcoholic rehabilitation program sponsored by an approved private or governmental institution as a precondition for continued enrollment at the College.

  8. The term alcoholic beverage includes beer, wine, whiskey, and any other beverage listed in Chapter 18B of the General Statutes of North Carolina.

  9. Each faculty, staff or student is required to inform the College in writing within five days after he or she is convicted of any alcoholic beverage control statute where such violation occurred while on College premises or as part of any College-sponsored activity.
