Controlled Substances and the Law

It is unlawful for any person to manufacture, deliver, or possess with intent to manufacture and deliver a controlled substance.  For a full listing of Arkansas laws and penalties, please see the following: www.arkansas.gov

Drug convictions, and other criminal convictions, may affect your ability to receive federal student aid. The following information is provided by the Federal Student Aid website at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/eligibility/criminal-convictions

 “Your eligibility might be suspended if the offense occurred while you were receiving federal student aid (grants, loans, or work-study). When you complete the FAFSA form, you will be asked whether you had a drug conviction for an offense that occurred while you were receiving federal student aid. If the answer is yes, you will be provided a worksheet to help you determine whether your conviction affects your eligibility for federal student aid.

If your eligibility for federal student aid has been suspended due to a drug conviction, you can regain eligibility early by successfully completing an approved drug rehabilitation program or by passing two unannounced drug tests administered by an approved drug rehabilitation program. If you regain eligibility during the award year, notify your financial aid office immediately so you can get any aid you’re eligible for.

If you are convicted of a drug-related offense after you submit the FAFSA form, you might lose eligibility for federal student aid, and you might be liable for returning any financial aid you received during a period of ineligibility.”

 

Students with questions about criminal convictions and their federal student aid should contact the Hendrix Financial Aid Office at 501-450-1368, or visit https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/eligibility/criminal-convictions
