New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), as part of its mission to provide career-oriented professional education to its students, recognizes the importance of providing an environment that is conducive to learning and free of substance abuse.

NYIT prohibits the sale, distribution, consumption, possession, and use of all illegal substances on campus and at NYIT-sponsored student events off campus. Violations of this policy have serious consequences and may include expulsion from NYIT.

All students must note that NYIT maintains a drug-free and illegal substance-free workplace in keeping with the spirit and intent of the cultural sensitivity of the host country. The use of illegal substances is inconsistent with the behavior expected of students on NYIT campuses. In this regard, NYIT prohibits the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession, sale, or use of an illegal substance on campus.

"Illegal substances" are all substances prohibited by law. Use of exceptionally controlled substances is lawful when authorized by a duly administered medical prescription with the visa of the local Ministry of Health.

The complete Alcohol and Drug Prevention Policy is available at the Office of the Director of Student Affairs/Dean of Students (Policies and Procedures Manual D-2.8).
