Drug Abuse Policy

In compliance with federal government regulations for a drug-free workplace for students and employees. Any student caught in possession, use, or distribution of illegal substances or paraphernalia will be dismissed and/or referred to the appropriate agency. Students convicted for any offense, during a period enrollment for which the student was receiving Title IV funds, under any federal or state law involving possession or sale of illegal drugs will result in the loss of eligibility for any Title IV assistance.

This policy strictly prohibits the illegal use, possession, manufacture, dispensing, or distribution of alcohol, drugs or controlled substances in the workplace, on its premises, or as a part of all school sponsored activities. A violation of this policy is considered a major offense, which may result in requirement for satisfactory participation in a drug or alcohol rehabilitation program, referral for criminal prosecution, and/or immediate disciplinary action up to and including termination from employment and suspension or expulsion from the school. A criminal conviction is not required for sanctions to be imposed upon an employee or student for violations of this policy. Violations of applicable local, state and federal laws may subject a student or employee to a variety of legal sanctions including but not limited to fines, incarceration, imprisonment and/or community service requirements. Convictions become a part of an individual’s criminal record and may prohibit certain career and professional opportunities.

If while in school a student enters and completes a treatment program:

  • A student regains eligibility the day after the period of ineligible ends or when he/she successfully completes a qualified drug rehabilitation program.
  • Further drug conviction will make him/her ineligible again. A qualified drug rehabilitation program must include at least two unannounced drug tests and must satisfy at least one of the following requirements:
  • Be qualified to receive funds directly or indirectly from a federal, state, or local government program.
  • Be qualified to receive payment directly or indirectly from a federally or state-licensed insurance company.
  • Be administered or recognized by federal, state or local government agency or court.
  • Be administered or recognized by federally, or state-licensed hospital, health clinic, or medical doctor.

LAWS REGARDING ALCOHOL AND DRUGS STATE OF TEXAS

STATE OF TEXAS

In addition to the Federal laws, the State of TEXAS has its own laws dealing with controlled substances.

Texas legislators have created the Texas Controlled Substances Act as a part of the Health and Safety Code, which has laws and suggestions for all aspects of health. The act includes definitions, charges and penalties of drug abuse in Texas.

Drugs and Drug Abuse

Texas law defines a drug as a substance, other than food or a device that alters the structure and functions of the body and can be used with the intention of curing, treating, and preventing diseases in humans and animals. Under this definition, many substances used by doctors every day with benevolent intentions fall under this category. Drug abuse, the illegal use of drugs or the misuse of prescription drugs is illegal in Texas and all of the United States.

Drugs Affected by Act

Anything generally considered an illicit drug is covered in this act. Texas Law defines six major drug groups: narcotics, depressants, stimulants, hallucinogens, marijuana, and simulated controlled substances. Any person who abuses any of the drugs under these categories is liable for punishment under law.

Possession

Possession of any illicit drug is illegal. However, if a court decides that a suspect had lawful possession of a drug—with a prescription from a legitimate doctor or other medical personnel—then he will be acquitted. However, if there is any reason to suggest that the defendant has abused prescription drugs, he will likely receive drug charges.

Manufacturing, Trafficking, and Sales

Beyond possession, trafficking of drugs or any materials with the intention of being used for drug production is illegal. Manufacturing drugs is also illegal. Materials or equipment used to produce drugs, known legally as paraphernalia, is illegal to possess if the court decides it is being used for malicious, illicit activity. Sales by illegitimate and unlicensed businesses or individuals are strictly prohibited. Penalties

Drugs in Texas are classified into four categories with the first penalty group being the drugs considered the most severe. Consequently, drug charges relating to the Penalty Group 1 will be the most severe and penalties for Penalty Group 4 will be the least severe. Those convicted under any drug charges can expect to spend at least 5 years in prison. Drug charges relating to Penalty Group 1 will be penalized with at least 15 years in prison. The maximum sentence a convicted suspect can expect is 99 years for drug charges—essentially a life sentence. On top of this, penalties may include charges up to $300,000 in fines for those convicted. Drug charges for violations carried out in the presence of children are more severe and receive harsher punishments.

FEDERAL

Federal law penalizes the unlawful manufacturing, distribution, use, sale, and possession of controlled substances. The penalties vary based on many factors, including the type and amount of the drug involved, and whether there is intent to distribute. Federal law sets penalties for first offenses ranging from less than one year to life imprisonment and/or fines up to $10 million. Penalties may include forfeiture of property, including vehicles used to possess, transport, or conceal a controlled substance; the denial of professional licenses or Federal benefits, such as student loans, grants, and contracts; successful completion of a drug treatment program; community service; and ineligibility to receive or purchase a firearm. Federal law holds that any person who distributes, possesses with intent to distribute, or manufactures a controlled substance on or within one thousand feet of an educational facility is subject to a doubling of the applicable maximum punishments and fines. See the Federal Controlled Substances Act at 21 USC 800.

Return to Title IV/Refund Repayments Policy

This policy applies to all recipients of Federal Title IV Financial Aid Funds. Students that are no longer attending Peloton Collegemay still owe funds to the school to cover unpaid tuition. Additionally, the school may attempt to collect any funds from a student that the school was required to return as a result of this policy.

Peloton College is required to calculate how much federal aid may be retained or disbursed for a student who withdraws prior to the end of a payment period. The calculated amount is referred to as “Return of Title IV Funds” (R2T4), The calculation of Title IV funds earned by the student has no relationship to the student’s tuition and fees that may be owed to the school. All students subject to this policy are determined according to the following definitions and procedures, as prescribed by regulation.

Peloton College has 45 days from the date the school determines the students withdrew to return all unearned funds for which it is responsible. The school will notify the student in writing of the amount of funds that must be returned. The school will advise the student and/or parent that they have 14 calendar days from the date the school sent the notification to accept a post-withdrawal disbursement for funds that have not been disbursed but are eligible to be used for tuition and fees. If a response is not received from the student and/or parent within the permitted time frame or the student declines the funds, the school will return any earned funds being held from Title IV programs. All post-withdrawal disbursement must occur within 90 days of the date the student withdrew.

Withdrawal before 60%

Peloton College must perform a R2T4 to determine the amount of earned aid up through the 60% point in each payment period and use the Department of Education’s prorate schedule to determine the amount of R2T4 funds the student has earned at the time of withdrawal. After the 60% point in the payment period or period of enrollment, a student has earned 100% of the Title IV funds he or she was scheduled to receive during the period.

Complaint Process Disclosure

Federal Program Integrity rules issued by the U.S. Department of Education require institutions to provide to students or prospective students contact information needed to file a complaint with its accrediting agency and with relevant state agencies.
