Summary of the Law:
This law requires institutions receiving federal financial assistance to establish drug and alcohol abuse prevention programs for students and employees. Students and employees must receive materials annually that contain standards of conduct, a description of the various laws that apply in that jurisdiction regarding alcohol and drugs, a description of counseling and treatment programs that are available, and a statement on the sanctions the university will impose for a violation of the standards of conduct. The law also requires a biennial review of the program. Record keeping requirements include keeping a copy of the biennial review and other compliance documents for three years after the fiscal year in which the record was created.
- Provide students with the materials noted above: CUA satisfies this requirement by providing students with a copy of the Student Handbook, which contains the information required under DFSCA.
- Conduct a biennial review of Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) prevention programs
- Retain records of the biennial review for three years.
Effective August 14, 2008, pursuant to amendments in the HEOA, any biennial review must include a determination of the number of drug and alcohol-related violations and fatalities that occur on the institution's campus or as part of the institution's activities and the number and type of sanctions imposed by the institution as a result of drug and alcohol-related violations and fatalities that occur on the institution's campus or as part of the institution's activities.
