South Florida State College (SFSC) is committed to providing a campus environment free from the abuse of alcohol and/or the illegal use of alcohol or other drugs, as set forth in SFSC District Board of Trustees Policy 1.07.  The use of illegal drugs and performance-enhancing substances, as well as the misuse of tobacco, alcohol, legal drugs, and over-the-counter medications and supplements, is inconsistent with the standards expected of SFSC students and is thus prohibited.

The college president is authorized to develop administrative procedures to provide for substance abuse testing of student-athletes and students in specialized programs.  These procedures will include provisions for notification, exceptions, testing, chain of custody provisions, disciplinary consequences, complaint procedures, and enforcement.
