HCCC is very strict about violations to the College’s alcohol and other drugs policy. This policy governs the activity of all students, residents, and their visitors and guests. The service, distribution, sale, possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages or attempt on the HCCC Campus and HCCC Housing Corporation property are prohibited.
Unlawful behavior involving alcohol, but not limited to, underage drinking, public intoxication, drinking and driving and manufacturing and/or distributing is prohibited.
The manufacture, distribution, sale, purchase, possession and use of any illegal drugs or controlled substances or attempts thereof onthe HCCC Campus and HCCC HousingCorporation property are prohibited.
Persons violating these policies are subject to disciplinary action. The disciplinary action may include, but is not limited to reprimand, disciplinary probation with or without specific conditions, referral to individual and/or group counseling at the student’s expense, parental notification and/or suspension.
A violation of this policy is considered a breach of the student housing contract and a violation of the College Student Code of Conduct. Sanctions imposed under this policy do not diminish or replace the penalties available under generally applicable federal, state or local laws. Be smart! Don’t forget:
- Know the law: Alcohol is illegal to buy or possess if you are under 21 years of age.
- Using false identification for purchasing alcoholic beverages carries a maximum penalty of $100 and/or thirty hours of community service.
- Using forged identification (changing date of birth) is a felony punishable up to 7 years in State Prison.
- Penalties for possession of alcohol, with intent to consume, carry up to $50 and/or thirty hours of community service.
- The license (or the privilege of obtaining a license) can now be suspended for any person under the age of 21 who illegally purchases or attempts to illegally purchase an alcoholic beverage using a license issued by any state or country.
