MGCC is committed to providing our students with the best possible educational journey. This commitment is not only related to academic success. The use of alcohol and drugs seriously impair your ability to think clearly and behave rationally. As such, the College has clear policies outlining expectations and acceptable student behavior. In addition, the College has a strong referral program for those that wish to seek help and support.
MGCC prohibits the unauthorized manufacture, distribution and/or possession of alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, firearms, or other weapons or controlled substances on campus or at campus sponsored activities. Please reference the State Board for Community College’s Weapons policy in appendix A of the MGCC College Catalog and Student Handbook. Students who violate local, state or federal laws may be referred by College authorities for criminal prosecution. Resources include the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (1-800-451-5544). More information can be found in the MGCC College Catalog and Student Handbook.
