Alcohol and Drug Policy

There is a zero tolerance policy for the use, possession or intent to distribute alcohol or drugs on the BFIT or BFIT Housing premises. These offenses are serious in nature and will result in sanctions that may include suspension from the residence hall and/or expulsion from the college.

There will be no use, possession or distribution of alcoholic beverages, regardless of age. Persons 21 or older will have the responsibility of conducting themselves in a professional manner at all times. While the college does not have jurisdiction outside of the BFIT and BFIT Housing premises, any student that appears intoxicated upon entering either of these buildings will be in violation and subject to sanctions.

Knowingly being in the presence of someone using, possessing or has the intent to distribute alcohol or drugs is prohibited. Students are reminded that strict penalties may apply to trafficking drugs, from incarceration to the payment of high fines. BFIT is in full cooperation with government authorities regarding legal ramifications of drug and alcohol usage.

Students seeking counseling or professional services for alcohol or drug-related matters will meet with a Student Conduct Officer. Referrals can be made for the student to seek outside assistance.
