Alcohol and Drug Use Policies

It is the responsibility of students to be familiar with Clemson University’s Alcohol and Other Drug Policies.

A few highlights of the policies include:

  • The illicit or unauthorized manufacture, use, possession, distribution or dispensation of alcohol or illegal drugs on University property or as part of any University activity is prohibited.

  • The University, through the Office of Community and Ethical Standards (OCES), will impose disciplinary sanctions on students who violate the standards of conduct. The severity of the imposed sanctions will be appropriate to the violation.

  • The health risks of using alcohol and other drugs include both physical and psychological effects. For all substances, there is a risk of overdose.

  • Clemson University and local agencies coordinate a wide variety of prevention, intervention and treatment efforts.

  • Incidents that occur off campus are within the jurisdiction of the Student Code of Conduct
