In addition, a court may suspend or terminate an individual’s eligibility for federal benefits, including student financial assistance, if that individual is convicted of certain drug offenses. ◊ Please refer to the college’s Alcohol and Drug brochure for more information, and visit the FAFSA website “drug question” at www.fafsa.gov.
