A student regains eligibility the day after the period of ineligibility ends following a first or second offense; or when the student successfully completes a qualified drug rehabilitation program that includes passing two unannounced drug tests given by such a program. A student will become ineligible as a result of any further drug convictions.
Students denied eligibility for an indefinite period can regain eligibility after completing any of the following three options:
- Successfully completing a rehabilitation program (as described below, which includes passing two unannounced drug tests from such a program);
- Having the conviction reversed, set aside, or removed from the student's record so that fewer than two convictions for sale or three convictions for possession remain on the record; or
- Successfully completing two unannounced drug tests which are part of a rehab program (the student does not need to complete the rest of the program).
A drug rehabilitation program is considered approved for these purposes if it includes at least two unannounced drug tests and meets one of the following requirements:
- The program received or is qualified to receive funds directly or indirectly under a federal, state or local government program.
- The program is administered or recognized by a federal, state or local government agency or court.
- The program received or is qualified to receive payment directly or indirectly from a federally or state licensed insurance company.
- The program is administered or recognized by a federally or state-licensed hospital, health clinic, or medical doctor.
When a student regains eligibility during the award year, MWU may award campus-based aid for the current payment period (quarter) and Direct Loans for the period of enrollment (academic year).
