Juniata considers as serious the possession and misuse of illegal or dangerous drugs. If there is involvement, disciplinary action will be taken which could lead to separation from the college. The college is not a sanctuary from the law and will not impede the efforts of law enforcement officials who are investigating the involvement of persons with illegal or dangerous drugs.

Since the use of drugs (including alcohol) may be associated with medical and psychological problems, students may be referred, or refer themselves, to the counseling and medical resources of the college.
