Drug or Fraud Convictions

Drug Offenses

By federal law, students convicted of drug offenses committed while receiving Title IV federal financial aid may be ineligible for federal financial aid for one or more years from the date of conviction.

Disqualification for Title IV Federal Aid
Offense 1st Conviction 2nd Conviction 3rd Conviction
1 year 2 years permanent
Sales 2 years permanent

The law does not apply to juvenile records, and students may regain eligibility by completing an acceptable drug rehabilitation program or by having their convictions overturned.

If you have been convicted of a drug offense while receiving Title IV federal financial aid, you must report it on the FAFSA. For additional information on this requirement call a federal representative at 1-800-433-3243.

Title IV Fraud

Students who have been convicted of or who have pled nolo contendere or guilty to a crime involving fraud in obtaining Title IV federal financial aid are not eligible for additional federal aid until they have repaid the fraudulently obtained funds.
