Statement on Substance Abuse

The College recognizes the importance of assisting students in their development of a lifestyle free from the use of illegal substances and the abuse of alcohol. When a student is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs, that student will be reported to the Student Affairs Director on their respective campus. Appropriate actions will be taken. This may include referral to counseling support programs, suspension, or termination of enrollment. Details of the legal sanctions under applicable federal, state and local alcohol and drug laws, and the Pennsylvania and Georgia vehicle codes and Pharmacy Acts are provided in the PCOM General Student Handbook.
