Excerpt from the 2011-12 SCAD Student Handbook. Read the complete policy posted in MySCAD. 

The Savannah College of Art and Design is in full compliance with the Drug-free Schools and Communities Act Amendment of 1989 (Public Law 101-226); 49 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 40: Procedures for Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing; 49 Code of Federal Regulations, Part 382: Controlled Substances and Alcohol Use and Testing; and the Omnibus Transportation Employee Testing Act of 1991; and is committed to a program that discourages the illegal use and abuse of alcohol and controlled substances by students and employees. 

SCAD prohibits the unlawful possession, use, manufacture, distribution or dispensing of alcohol or controlled substances by students or employees in SCAD buildings, on grounds or property, or as part of any college activity. Any full- or part-time student/employee found to be in violation of this policy is subject to disciplinary action in accordance with the policies and laws of the college, the city, the county, the state and the federal government. Students also are responsible for the actions of their guests. 

Controlled substances include, but are not limited to, marijuana, cocaine, cocaine derivatives, heroin, barbiturates, LSD, PCP, amphetamines, tranquilizers and inhalants. 

Students and employees are to be aware that illegal manufacture, possession, use, distribution or dispensing of controlled substances may subject individuals to criminal prosecution.
