Drugs, Alcohol and Other Substances

In compliance with the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendment of 1989 (Public Law 101-226) and Texas House Resolution 2253 and Senate Resolution 645 (passed in 1987), South Texas College forbids the unlawful manufacture, possession, sale, use or distribution of illegal drugs and alcoholic beverages at on-and off-campus college-sponsored events. South Texas College Policy states that no illegal drugs (including unlawful possession of alcohol) will be allowed on campus (inside buildings and on-campus property), and those students who are found guilty of such violation(s) may be subject to discipline up to and including expulsion from the college. Students in violation of the Texas Penal Code may also be arrested and prosecuted.

Students seeking assistance or educational materials about alcohol, drugs, or other substances should contact the Office of Counseling and Disability Services at 956-872-2173.
