Substance Abuse

​Broward College recognizes the health risks and costs associated with the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol, and are committed to providing a drug-free and alcohol-free educational environment, which supports the mission of the College. In compliance with the Federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act, Broward College strictly prohibits the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession, or use of a controlled substance at the College. Sanctions are in place for those who violate the policy. Broward College also provides counseling to both its students and employees for alcohol and drug abuse.


Broward College policies 6Hx2-6.32 and 6Hx2-5.18, as well as Code of Conduct 6Hx2-5.02, specifically address that the use or sale of alcoholic beverages at all Broward College sites is prohibited. Students may not be under the influence or in possession of alcohol while on college property or while participating in a college-sanctioned activity. It is unlawful to sell, furnish or provide alcohol to a person under the age of 21. The possession of alcohol by anyone less than 21 years of age in a public place or a place open to the public is illegal.
Broward College policy 6Hx2-5.18, as well as Code of Conduct 6Hx2-5.02, addresses the substance abuse policy. Violators are subject to College disciplinary action, criminal prosecution, fine, and/or imprisonment in accordance with Broward College Student Code of Conduct 6Hx2-5.02 up to and including expulsion from the College. If a student is required to submit to a drug screening by the Dean of Students based on behaviors that indicate the use of drugs or alcohol which impairs their ability to perform in their academic program, refusal to submit to such a drug screening will be treated as a positive test result. The College retains the right to dismiss a student from the College or from a specific program, in accordance with the Program Guidelines for that program.
In addition, Broward College faculty and staff need to abide by the Drug Free Workplace Policy
and Procedure 6Hx2-3.05.
Any employee who violates the Drug Free Workplace Policy and Procedure 6Hx2-3.05​ is subject to discipline up to and including termination. The College may require an employee who violates this policy to successfully and satisfactorily complete a drug abuse assistance or rehabilitation program approved for such purposes by a federal, state, or local agency.
