Cannabis law in Illinois does not change College policy

Starting January 1, 2020 cannabis can be legally purchased and used in some circumstances in the state of Illinois, but federal law still prohibits marijuana usage on campus.

A new Student Handbook that includes a refreshed drug policy will be released during the first week of classes with an email announcement.

“In these interim days, we want to be sure you know that the College policy has not changed: cannabis/marijuana use on College property continues to be prohibited,” Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of Students Andrea Conner and Director of Public Safety Rick Cohen said in a campus wide email last week.
