CSU Chico Drug and Alcohol Policies

Alcohol Policy

Alcohol is not sold or permitted on the campus. State law prohibits persons under the age of 21 to possess or use alcoholic beverages. It also is a violation of state law to furnish alcoholic beverages to anyone under the age of 21. EM 90-38 states that “The possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages on the California State University, Chico campus is generally prohibited as a matter of institutional policy.”
Possession, transportation, or consumption of alcoholic beverages is prohibited in all oncampus residence halls, including lawns, parking lots, and grounds surrounding them. The university has a “no warning” policy of enforcement. Violators will face disciplinary action, including required attendance at Alcohol Education classes, performance of service hours, probation, termination of their housing contract,
or possible suspension from the university. For complete information, check with University Housing and Food Service (x6325). No student-sponsored group or organization may expend any Associated Students Activity Fee funds for the purchase of alcoholic beverages. For further information on campus policies, consult the Coordinator of Student Judicial Affairs (KNDL 110, x6897).

Drug Policy

Executive Memorandum 96-38, Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities, states “Students as members of the academic community accept both the rights and the responsibilities incumbent upon all members of the institution.” The California State University Board of Trustees has established specific violations for which students may be subject to sanctions, including expulsion, suspension, and probation. Students
will be disciplined for violations including the sale or knowing possession, on campus property, of dangerous drugs, restricted dangerous drugs, or narcotics as those terms are used in California statutes, except when lawfully permitted for the purpose of research, instruction, or analysis.

Smoking Policy

The university recognizes the harmful effects of smoking and involuntary contact with smoke. Smoking is prohibited in all university facilities (except for living quarters with open-air system designs) and within 25 feet of building doorways, windows, breezeways, and awnings. This prohibition also includes university vehicles. Students are required to comply with this policy during their enrollment at the university. For complete text, see Executive Memorandum 02-108.
