Q. If I’m convicted of illegal drug possession or sale of illegal drugs after I submit my FAFSA, will it affect my federal financial aid?

Posted by Richard E. Clark | Jul 07, 2013 | 0 Comments

A. “If you are convicted of possessing or selling drugs after you submit your FAFSA, you must notify the financial aid administrator at your college immediately. You will lose your eligibility for federal student aid and will be required to pay back all aid you received after your conviction.” This is a quote from the FAFSA Application last updated on July 1, 2013.

If you are a student or have received Federal Financial Aid, the implications of a poorly handled drug possession or drug distribution charge can have severe collateral consequences.
