Webinar: Alcohol, Drugs, and College Students
Presenter: Latasha Y. Hicks Becton, Ph.D., LCMHC, LCAS, CCS
Description: Institutions of higher education are required to follow the federal regulations set forth by the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act (DFSCA). As part of those regulations, each institution must establish and implement a program of alcohol and drug prevention, education, and intervention for students and staff. In this presentation, we’ll talk specifically about patterns of alcohol and drug use in collegiate student populations as well as discuss potential interventions and ways to support students who wish to modify their patterns of alcohol and/or other drug use.
- Explain the parameters of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act relevant to institutions of higher education
- Describe the problem of alcohol and drug use in college students.
- Discuss potential interventions for students that are using alcohol and other drugs

Student Liability Coverage in Practicum and Internship
We have a change in the requirement for professional liability coverage while in Practicum and Internship. Starting this summer, 2022, students will no longer purchase a blanket policy through the University.
Students will need to join either ACA, ASCA, or AMHCA and receive liability coverage through the organization (which should come with membership). Students will need to submit a “Certificate of Insurance” (COI) when they submit their Memorandum of Agreement (MOA).
When you join one of the above organization, be sure to either download or request a copy of your COI. It is only one of many benefits in joining a professional organization.

Pursuing a Second Degree
For students who are graduating Spring 2022 or later, you MUST complete a minimum of 18 semester hours above and beyond your original plan of study in order to receive a second degree from NCCU. There are very specific courses that must be completed to receive a second degree and these are specified on this page: http://www.nccucounseling.com/student2/index.php/advising/dual-major
If you are pursuing two degrees, make sure that you have completed the new form that ensures the University is aware of your intention to pursue two degrees at the same time. This form is new as of fall 2021. It can be found in the forms area of the student website ("Adding a Second Major").
This form is completed and sent to your advisor for processing. Once the form has been processed, you should see both degree programs on your transcript in BANNER.
Please note that your second internship must consist of a 600-hour placement. In other words, students receiving a second degree will complete a second 600-hour internship placement (600 hours for their first major, 600 hours for their second major).
Please speak with your advisor if you have any questions.
