In collaboration with Office of Student Conduct, Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Education provides education and intervention for any students, including BASICS. This program is provided to students found in violation of the university’s alcohol policy and other drug policy concerning marijuana.

Program Cost

For those students mandated to complete BASICS, the cost is $100 and can be paid at the Student Health Center cashier’s office during normal business hours at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled class.

State of North Carolina Alcohol and/or Drug Violations

Occasionally, students receive a state ticket for an alcohol violation. These differ from Student Conduct Referrals and require students to appear in state court. Students often wish to know if BASICS will satisfy court requirements. The Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention Education office cannot guarantee that the court system will accept BASICS in lieu of an assessment and classes with an outside agency. We strongly recommend students talk to the judge or their attorney to ensure that BASICS will be acceptable prior to enrolling.  Students that complete BASICS in an attempt to satisfy a court sanction are required to pay the non-refundable fee.
