College Policy On Alcohol And Drug Use

The sale, possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages and/or narcotics, hallucinogens, stimulants, and marijuana are specifically prohibited. Violations will be reported to the proper law enforcement officials for prosecution. No one under the influence of alcohol or other drugs will be allowed to attend class or to remain on the campus.

The same policy regarding the prohibition of alcohol and/or other drugs also applies to student conduct on or during any college sponsored event or activity that is off campus. Violations will be subject to the same disciplinary action as on-campus violations. The South Carolina Technical College System recognizes that chemical dependency through use of controlled or uncontrolled substances, including alcohol, is a treatable illness.

Florence-Darlington's staff is available to assist in determining appropriate resources to meet your needs regarding drug or alcohol abuse. The staff are located in the 5000 Building, Room 5100. Staff are available Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm during the Fall and Spring semesters.
