Alcoholic Beverage and Narcotics Policy
Alcoholic beverages are prohibited on campus at all times regardless of your age. If you are caught with alcohol on campus, it will be confiscated and you will be asked to leave the campus. Students caught with alcohol on campus will have their I.D. taken from them. They will then pick up their I.D. at the Student Services Office. The Dean of Students will issue the necessary sanctions which may include fines, community service work, suspension or expulsion from all college activities, along with the possibility of criminal charges.
All illegal narcotics are prohibited on campus and at all college-sponsored events. Anyone caught possessing, transporting or selling a controlled substance is in violation of both college and state laws. College sanctions include fines, community service work, and expulsion from all college activities, along with the possibility of criminal charges. The Pennsylvania State Police may also be summoned. As a result, criminal charges are possible.
Firearms, or any type of weapons, are prohibited on college property. This includes the main campus as well as our satellite sites. Any violators to this policy will be turned over to the Dean of Students and the Pennsylvania State Police. As a result, criminal charges are possible.
Lehigh Carbon Community College has an “open-door” policy, which means anyone can be admitted as a student.
All employees undergo a reference check prior to being hired. They must also reveal any prior criminal convictions on their application for employment.
Drug Free Campus
Lehigh Carbon Community College strives to create an environment in which students can obtain a quality education. As a member of the college community, it is important for you to know that the use of alcohol or illicit drugs on campus is strictly prohibited.
