Policy and Purpose of Policy 

The purpose of the Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD) policy is to comply with the Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations Act and to further Guilford’s commitment to a safe workplace and learning environment. 

Guilford College’s policy on alcohol and other drugs states that the use, possession, manufacture, sale, or transfer of illegal or prescription drugs, drug paraphernalia (purchased or homemade), or alcoholic beverages on College property or while engaged in College work or other official College activities is strictly forbidden. Being under the influence of drugs or alcohol while engaged in College work or other official College activities, while on College property also is prohibited.

All students at Guilford College are responsible for complying with the College’s alcohol and drug policy. Guilford College will impose disciplinary sanctions on students for violations of the College’s alcohol and drug policy (as well as any other policies) as outlined in the Student Handbook.
