Anti-Drug Abuse Act

Students convicted of drug felonies may lose their eligibility for federal financial aid programs. The Omnibus Drug Initiative Act of 1988 authorizes the federal courts to suspend eligibility for federal student aid when sentencing an individual convicted of possession or distribution of a controlled substance. A student convicted of illegal drug possession or illegal drug sale may have his or her eligibility for federal student aid suspended for one or more years or may lose his or her eligibility indefinitely for additional convictions. Florida Gulf Coast University students convicted of drug felonies will also be subject to discipline under the Student Code of Conduct and sanctions may include suspension or expulsion from the University.
