Occidental College is in compliance with the Drug-Free Schools and Community Act Amendments of 1989.
Occidental College's alcohol and drug policy complies with the requirements set forth by the Drug-Free Schools and Community Act Amendments of 1989 (Public Law 101-226; final regulations published on Aug. 16, 1990) that require the College to certify to the U.S. Department of Education by Oct. 1, 1990, that it had adopted and implemented a program to prevent the illicit use of drugs and the abuse of alcohol by its students.
The alcohol and drug policy provides students with standards of conduct regarding the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of alcohol, controlled substances and marijuana; legal sanctions under local, state, federal law as well as university sanctions; and information regarding health risks and treatment services for substance abuse. This alcohol and drug policy is reviewed every two years by a committee of faculty, administrators, staff and students.
The Student Handbook details the complete College drug and alcohol policy.
