• Student Acknowledgement Form



    The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 (Public Law 101-226) requires institutions receiving federal financial assistance to implement and enforce drug prevention programs and policies.

    As a matter of policy, the College prohibits the manufacture and unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees on its property and at any school activity. Any violation of this policy will result in appropriate disciplinary actions, up to and including expulsion (in the case of students) and termination (in the case of employees), even for a first offense. Where it is apparent that a violation of the law has occurred, the appropriate law enforcement authorities will be notified.

    In certain cases, students and employees may be referred to counseling sources and/or substance abuse help centers. If such a referral is made, continued enrollment or employment will be subject to successful completion of any prescribed counseling or treatment program. Students and employees who believe they have a substance abuse problem and are seeking treatment may contact the Director of Student Services for referral assistance. All such matters will be handled confidentially.

    STANDARDS OF CONDUCT: The rules and regulations of the College clearly prohibit the use of or distribution of any intoxicating beverage or illicit drug while on the school premises or while on a school activity.

    APPLICABLE LEGAL SANCTIONS: Legal sanctions (city/state/federal) may result in a fine and/or imprisonment.

    COUNSELING AGENCIES: The following centers are available for counseling:

    Alcoholics Anonymous


    University Hospital and Clinics


    Mountain Land Rehabilitation


    Alcoholism Foundation


    House of Hope


    Salt Lake Substance Abuse


    DISCIPLINARY ACTION: If a student should violate this regulation, he/she will be terminated from classes and the violation or violations will be referred to the City Police Department. Severity of the offense and any action needed will be determined by and enforced by the appropriate authorities.
