Alcohol and Drug Education and Prevention

Counseling and Campus Wellness,
Clay Pathfinder Building, Suite 207, 307.778.4397

Laramie County Community College has the responsibility of maintaining an educational environment conducive to academic achievement and of assisting students to be successful. LCCC recognizes that the use and abuse of alcohol and other drugs interfere with students’ educational goals and, therefore, is committed to facilitating a drug-free learning environment. Students, faculty and staff have access to education on alcohol and other drugs. As well as educating the college community, LCCC has stringent policies governing the use of alcohol and other drugs on campus or at LCCC-sponsored activities.

Students should be aware that according to the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988 (Section 5301), state and federal courts are provided with the ability to deny benefits to students who receive federal financial aid (e.g., Pell Grant, Direct Loans). If a student is convicted of drug distribution or possession, the court may suspend eligibility for Title IV financial aid.

Students convicted of a drug-related offense under any federal of state law involving the possession or sale of a controlled substance while enrolled and receiving federal financial aid, will lose eligibility for federal financial aid under Section 484 (r) of the Higher Education Act according to the following schedule:

Possession:

First offense-1 year from date of conviction.
Second offense-2 years from date of conviction.
Third offense-indefinite.

Sale:

First offense-2 years from date of conviction.
Second offense-indefinite.

If a student successfully completes a qualified drug rehabilitation program after the conviction, eligibility for federal student aid funds can be regained as of the day the student successfully completes the program.

Students pursuing certificate or licensure credentials should be aware that conviction of any crime (including drug- and/or alcohol-related offenses) may jeopardize their eligibility to successfully complete licensure requirements and be employed in their chosen field following the completion of a degree program at LCCC. Consult with an academic advisor or the appropriate accrediting agency for more detailed information regarding these restrictions.

The Drug-Free School and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 (Public Law 101-226) requires that Laramie County Community College inform students and employees of the legal sanctions of illicit drugs and alcohol. This information is made available to all campus community members on the LCCC website.

Substance-Free Campus

The Laramie County Community College Board of Trustees and the Student Government Association have enacted a drug and alcohol procedure stating that drugs and alcoholic beverages may not be present on campus or at college-sponsored student activities. (Alcohol may be used for instructional (non-consumption) purposes with the approval of the instructor and the appropriate school dean.) This procedure states that the college will take disciplinary action for the following violations:

  1. “The manufacture, possession, use, sale or distribution of narcotics, illegal drugs, drug paraphernalia or prescription drugs for which the person does not have a prescription or being under the influence on college premises or at college-sponsored activities.”
  2. “The manufacture, possession, consumption, sale, or distribution of alcoholic beverages, including public intoxication, on college premises or at college-sponsored activities.”

Disciplinary Actions for Drug and Alcohol Violations

Students are responsible for complying with provisions of Wyoming law that make it a crime to possess, sell, deliver or manufacture those drugs designated collectively as controlled substances. Any student who violates the law is subject to prosecution and punishment by the civil authorities and to disciplinary proceedings by the college.

The penalties which may be imposed by the college include verbal warnings, written warnings, restitution, withdrawal agreements, disciplinary probation, disciplinary suspension, summary suspension or expulsion. The following mandatory minimum sanctions apply when students are responsible for violating LCCC’s substance-free policies.

  1. Trafficking in Illegal Drugs
    For students found responsible for the illegal manufacture, sale or delivery, or possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver any controlled substance, the minimum penalty shall be summary suspension.
  2. Illegal Possession of Drugs
    For students found responsible for a first offense involving the illegal possession of any controlled substance, the minimum penalty shall be probation for a period of time to be determined on a case-by-case basis. A person on probation must agree to participate in drug and alcohol information sessions. For subsequent violations involving illegal possession of controlled substances, progressively more severe penalties shall be imposed including possible suspension or expulsion. Refusal or failure to abide by the terms in the probation shall result in possible suspension or expulsion.
  3. Alcohol
    For students found responsible for offenses involving unlawful possession or consumption of alcohol, the minimum penalty shall be an alcohol assessment with Counseling & Campus Wellness. For subsequent violations, a progressive penalty system based on the type of infraction and the circumstances involved will be administered. Additional penalties may include a required compliance in an educational activity, referral for alcohol assessment/counseling, suspension, restitution, voluntary community service, and/or removal from the residential living and learning system, if applicable.

The college employs a Campus Safety force on a 24-hour, 365-day-a-year basis. The Laramie County Sheriff’s Department responds to activities of a criminal nature.
