The Drug Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 requires that Quest College, as an institution of higher education, adopt and implement a program to prevent the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students and employees.
Quest College has adopted the following policy: All students, upon enrolling in the institution, complete a document entitled “Drug Free Workplace Act” which is retained in
the file as a permanent record. When completed by the enrollee, the enrollee acknowledges that he/she understands and agrees to adhere to the Drug Free Workplace Policy. Among other items, this document allows the institution to perform random drug testing throughout the student body, as deemed necessary. The dangers of drug abuse are covered in lectures. Quest College shall continually monitor its Drug Free Workplace program to ensure it is in compliance with the above policy.
Quest College will not condone or allow the unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illegal drugs and alcohol by students, faculty, administration, or employees on its property or as a part of any of its activities
Quest College will impose disciplinary sanctions on students, faculty and employees, consistent with local, state, and federal law, as follows:
• A student, faculty, or administrative member who is suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or any controlled substance or illegal drug on Quest College premises or as a part of any of its activities, will be sent home. Transportation will be arranged.
• A student, faculty, or administrative member who was witnessed using alcohol or any controlled substance or illegal drug on Quest College premises or sponsored event may be dismissed or terminated from the program.
• A student, who admits to having a problem with alcohol, drugs, or both, and who wants to complete his/her studies at Quest College, will be required to complete either a drug or alcohol rehabilitation program or attend Alcohol Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).
O Documented proof of progress, completion and meeting attendance will be required at the end of thirty days leave of absence.
O The above policy must be strictly adhered to, and documentation given to the School Director, prior to re-admittance.
O A personal meeting with the School Director will also be required prior to re-admittance. Satisfactory progress is based upon the report of the student and discussion
with the involved treatment center and AA or NA sponsor.
O If the student chooses to attend AA or NA meetings, the student must attend at least tree meeting per week. Documentation must be presented to the School Director on the first meeting day of each week.
O Failure to present such documentation will result in termination.

The School Director shall annually review the Drug Prevention Program. Program evaluations will be completed by affected persons for constructive feedback and suggestions to improve.
It is the responsibility of the administration, faculty, and students at Quest College to see that disciplinary sanctions are consistently enforced. Anyone who suspects that a student, faculty, or administrative member has a drug or alcohol problem, or who witnesses a violation of the Quest College policy, shall inform the School Director in confidence.
