Although one’s college years may seem the perfect time for experimenting with drugs, many young people are unaware that their seemingly harmless actions may affect the rest of their lives. If caught using or distributing drugs on campus, Wisconsin students may face criminal charges and penalties as well as severe repercussions from university administration.
While each university has the ability to set their own campus policy in regards to drug use, many universities have similar penalties. At University of Wisconsin, students who are found selling drugs on campus grounds may be suspended for up to two years, depending on the specific details of the case. In some situations, students may be able to decrease their suspension period by agreeing to participate in drug counseling.
