Madison College recognizes that drug and alcohol dependency or abuse can cause major health problems, as well as  safety and security problems. 

  • Alcohol or drug abuse means that the use of a substance has caused a problem in the life of either the user or a significant other.
  • Dependency means that the person is using to feel normal and has no ability to abstain. Students are encouraged to address problems due to alcohol or other drug use as soon as possible. It makes no sense to wait until dependency has developed.

Students are expected to become familiar with the materials related to the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act.

Alcohol and drug policy Summary: State law and campus policy prevent the possession, use or sale of illegal drugs on campus. Alcohol use on campus is not permitted except in certain events with prior permission. Intoxication from any substance is not permitted in the student rights and responsibilities policy. Any violation of the Student Code of Conduct may serve as a basis for formal disciplinary review and action by the college and may jeopardize federal financial aid access.
