Federal Student Financial Aid Penalties for Drug Law Violations

The United States  Higher Education Act  suspends aid eligibility for students who have been convicted under federal or state law of the sale or possession of drugs, if the offense occurred during a period of enrollment for which the student was receiving federal student aid (grants, loans, and/or work-study). If you have a conviction(s) for these offenses, call the FederalStudentAidInformationCenter at 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243) or go to the FAFSA on the Web SM site, click on “Before Beginning A FAFSA” in the left column, then click on “Student Aid Eligibility Worksheet” to find out how this law applies to you.

If you have lost federal student aid eligibility due to a drug conviction, you can regain eligibility if you pass two unannounced drug tests conducted by a drug rehabilitation program that complies with criteria established by the U.S. Department of Education
