Conviction for possession or sale of illegal drugs
The college is not required to confirm this unless there is evidence of conflicting information.
A conviction that was reversed, set aside or removed from the student’s record does not count, nor does
not received when the student was a juvenile, unless he or she was tried as an adult.
The chart below illustrates the period of ineligibility for FSA funds, depending on whether the conviction
was for sale or possession and whether the student had previous offenses. (A conviction for the sale
of drugs includes convictions for conspiring to sell drugs.)
​                           Possession of illegal drugs            Sale of illegal drugs
1st offense         1 year from date of conviction        2 years from date of conviction
2nd offense        2 years from date of conviction      Indefinite period
3rd offense        Indefinite period

If the student was convicted of both possessing and selling illegal drugs, and the periods of ineligibility are
different, the student will be ineligible for the longer period. A student regains eligibility the day after the
period of ineligibility ends or when he or she successfully completes a qualified drug rehabilitation program.
Further drug convictions will make him or her ineligible again.
When a student regains eligibility during the award year the college may award Pell for the
current payment period
