Tens of thousands of students enroll every year in colleges and universities throughout North Carolina, with the goal of earning a college degree and working towards a fulfilling career.

Don’t let being arrested end your dreams of attending and graduating from college. We aggressively represent students who are facing drug charges throughout Eastern North Carolina.
Student Aid and Drug Charges
Answering “yes” or leaving it blank means you will be sent a worksheet with more questions to determine whether you are still qualify to receive aid or if you will become eligible again at some point in the future.
If you are convicted of a drug crime after you submit your FAFSA, however, you will not only lose your eligibility for that aid year, but you may be liable for returning any aid you received while ineligible.
Additional Consequences of a Student Drug Conviction
Being convicted of a felony drug charges can make you ineligible for certain careers. You will not only be prevented from pursuing certain educational and professional opportunities, but your civil rights, such as your right to bear arms, will be restricted if you have a felony conviction.
