Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA)

The Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 (DFSCA) requires institutions of higher education to establish programs that address unlawful possession, use, or distribution of alcohol and illicit drugs, and foster safe and drug-free learning environments which promote academic achievment.

In accordance with the DFSCA, Collin College conducts a Biennial Review of its participation. The most recent Biennial Review can be found here.

In accordance with the DFSCA, Collin College informs each student annually about the following information related to use of illegal drugs, alcohol abuse, inhalants, and unauthorized use of prescription and over the counter (OTC) medications:

  1. standards of conduct;
  2. Collin College's sanctions for violations of the alcohol and drug provisions laid out in the current Student Code of Conduct;
  3. legal sanctions under local, state, and federal laws;
  4. associated health risks; and
  5. substance abuse counseling, treatment, and prevention programs available to Collin College students.
