This probation will be in effect for no more than four (4) semesters.
    • RESTRICTIVE PROBATION: Restrictive Probation results in loss of good standing and becomes a matter of record. Restrictive conditions may limit activity in the college community.  Generally the individual will not be eligible for initiation into any local or national organization, and may not receive any college award or other honorary recognition.  The individual may not occupy a position of leadership or responsibility with any college or student organization, publication, or activity. This probation will be in effect for not less than two (2) semesters. Any violation of Restrictive Probation may result in immediate SUSPENSION.

    1. III. Health Risks
        1. A. Drug Abuse

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Drug addiction is a brain disease. Although initial drug use might be voluntary, drugs of abuse have been shown to alter gene expression and brain circuitry, which in turn affect human behavior.  Once addiction develops, these brain changes interfere with an individual’s ability to make voluntary decisions, leading to compulsive drug craving, seeking and use.

The impact of addiction can be far reaching. Cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, and lung disease can all be affected by drug abuse. Some of these effects occur when drugs are used at high doses or after prolonged use, however, some may occur after just one use.

B. Prescription Drug Abuse

Commonly abused classes of prescription drugs include opioids (for pain), central nervous system (CNS) depressants (for anxiety and sleep disorders), and stimulants (for ADHD and narcolepsy).

C. Nicotine Abuse

Nicotine can be found in cigarettes, cigars, bidis, and smokeless tobacco (snuff, spit tobacco, chew). Known health risks include chronic lung disease, cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancers of the mouth, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, stomach, pancreas, cervix, kidney, bladder, and acute myeloid leukemia; adverse pregnancy outcomes, and addiction.


D. Alcohol Abuse

Known health risks include increased risk of injuries, violence, fetal damage (in pregnant women). depression, neurologic deficits, hypertension, liver and heart disease, addiction, and fatal overdose.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse

Alcohol affects every organ in the drinker’s body and can damage a developing

fetus. Intoxication can impair brain function and motor skills; heavy use can

increase risk of certain cancers, stroke, and liver disease. Alcoholism or alcohol

dependence is a diagnosable disease characterized by a strong craving for

alcohol, and/or continued use despite harm or personal injury. Alcohol abuse,

which can lead to alcoholism, is a pattern of drinking that results in harm to

one’s health, interpersonal relationships, or ability to work.

IV.            Drug and Alcohol Programs

According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), the Principles of Drug Addiction Treatment, more than three decades of scientific research show that treatment can help drug-addicted individuals stop drug use, avoid relapse and successfully recover their lives. ( http://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/treatment-approaches-drug-addiction
(website last visited on 5/13/14)

Based on this research, 13 fundamental principles that characterize effective drug abuse treatment have been developed. These principles are detailed in NIDA’s Principles of Drug Addiction Treatment: A Research-Based Guide. The guide also describes different types of science-based treatments and provides answers to commonly asked questions.

Policy Statement

Guilford Technical Community College as a participant in federal loan programs is required to have a code of conduct relating to student financial aid matters that is applicable to the College’s agents and employees. The code of conduct requirements are set forth in the Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) signed into law on August 14, 2008.  In addition, the law includes requirements related to publication of the code and annual disclosures.

Reason for Policy

The HEOA program participation agreement which must be executed by all colleges and universities participating in Title IV financial aid programs, including student loan programs, requires a code of conduct with which the institution’s agents and employees shall comply. Such code must prohibit a conflict of interest with the responsibilities of an agent or employee of an institution with respect to such loans, and include the provisions set forth in the HEOA related to conflicts. The law further specifies that the code shall be displayed prominently on the institution’s website and that all institutional agents or employees with responsibilities related to such loans be annually informed of the provisions of the code of conduct.

Scope of Policy

This Code of Conduct applies to all agents or employees of the College.
This Code of Conduct shall be annually distributed to all college agents or employees with responsibilities related to student loan activities.

Code of Conduct

Guilford Technical Community College hereby adopts the following as its Code of Conduct Related to Student Loan Activities and will annually inform all College agents or employees with responsibilities for student loan activities and decisions of the provisions of this code.

  1. Revenue-sharing Arrangements.  The College shall not enter into any revenue-sharing arrangement with any lender.
    The term “revenue-sharing arrangement” means an arrangement between the College and a lender under which:
    • a lender provides or issues a loan that is made, insured, or guaranteed to students attending the College or to the families of such students; and
    • the College recommends the lender or the loan products of the lender and in exchange, the lender pays a fee or provides other material benefits, including revenue or profit sharing, to the College, an agent or employee of the College.
  2. Gifts.  No employee of the College who is employed in the financial aid office of the College or who otherwise has responsibilities with respect to education loans, or agent who has responsibilities with respect to education loans, shall solicit or accept any gift from a lender, guarantor, or servicer of education loans.
    The term ‘gift’ means any gratuity, favor, discount, entertainment, hospitality, loan, or other item having a monetary value of more than a minimum amount. The term includes a gift of services, transportation, lodging, or meals, whether provided in kind, by purchase of a ticket, payment in advance, or reimbursement after the expense has been incurred.
    The term ‘gift’ shall not include any of the following:

    • Standard material, activities, or programs on issues related to a loan, default aversion, default prevention, or financial literacy, such as a brochure, a workshop, or training.
    • Food, refreshments, training, or informational material furnished to an agent or employee of the College, as an integral part of a training session that is designed to improve the service of a lender, guarantor, or servicer of education loans to the College, if such training contributes to the professional development of the agent or employee.
    • Favorable terms, conditions, and borrower benefits on an education loan provided to a student employed by the College if such terms, conditions, or benefits are comparable to those provided to all students of the College.
    • Entrance and exit counseling services provided to borrowers to meet the College’s responsibilities for entrance and exit counseling as required by law, as long as the College’s staff are in control of the counseling, (whether in person or via electronic capabilities), and such counseling does not promote the products or services of any specific lender.
    • Philanthropic contributions to the College from a lender, servicer, or guarantor of education loans that are unrelated to education loans or any contribution from any lender, guarantor, or servicer that is not made in exchange for any advantage related to education loans.
    • State education grants, scholarships, or financial aid funds administered by or on behalf of a State.

      A gift to a family member of an agent or employee of the College, or to any other individual based on that individual’s relationship with the agent or employee, shall be considered a gift to the agent or employee, if the gift is given with the knowledge and acquiescence of the agent or employee and the agent or employee, has reason to believe the gift was given because of the official position of the agent or employee.

  3. Compensation for Services.  An agent or employee who is employed in the financial aid office of the College or who otherwise has responsibilities with respect to education loans shall not accept from any lender or affiliate of any lender any fee, payment, or other financial benefit (including the opportunity to purchase stock) as compensation for any type of consulting arrangement or other contract to provide services to a lender or on behalf of a lender relating to education loans.  Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed as prohibiting:
    • An agent or employee of the College who is not employed in the College’s financial aid office and who does not otherwise have responsibilities with respect to education loans, from performing paid or unpaid service on a board of directors of a lender, guarantor, or servicer of education loans.
    • An agent or employee of the College who is not employed in the College’s financial aid office but who has responsibility with respect to education loans as a result of a position held at the College, from performing paid or unpaid service on a board of directors of a lender, guarantor, or servicer of education loans, if the agent or employee recuses himself or herself from participating in any decision of the board regarding education loans at the College.
    • An agent or employee, or contractor of a lender, guarantor, or servicer of education loans from serving as a member of the College Board of Trustees if the  trustee recuses himself or herself from participation in any decision regarding education loans at the College.
