Alcoholic Beverages And Drugs On Campus


Alcoholic Beverages And Drugs On Campus

Middlesex Community College is committed to the health and well-being of its students and employees. As part of this commitment, MCC complies with and upholds all federal, state and local laws that regulate or prohibit the possession, use or distribution of alcohol or illicit drugs. The presence, possession and/or consumption of any alcoholic beverages on campus is prohibited anywhere on Middlesex Community College property, including the parking lots. Alcoholic beverage containers are not allowed on College property (whether empty or full) and will be confiscated. Violations of this policy will result in disciplinary action that may include notifying parents/legal guardians (if student is under age 21) and/or the local police, and/or other sanctions per the Middlesex Code of Conduct.

Any student found possessing, (unless prescribed by a physician) using, selling or involved in any way with narcotics, psychedelic drugs or chemicals, or dangerous drugs on this campus, unless prescribed by a physician, will be subject to disciplinary action. In addition, the College remains cognizant of its responsibilities to the civil authorities. Operating within this framework: Students who seek information, advice or counseling regarding drugs are urged to contact members of the Student Affairs staff or MCC Health Services. Also, staff members are prepared to refer students to appropriate professionals (medical, legal, psychiatric, etc.) according to the needs of the individual student. Contact will be held in complete confidence.

A student who ignores opportunities for help and assistance, and who willfully violates College regulations and the law, faces disciplinary action.
