Part of the Honor Code that all students commit to is to “abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee, and substance abuse.” Most students have not been exposed to any sort of drug-related activity while at BYU-Idaho. The campus is considered clean and has no tolerance for substance abuse. The policy of the University is to completely abstain from doing, possessing, or distributing any illegal drugs or harmful substances while at school and also on breaks. The Board of Trustees has determined that any involvement with illegal drugs will result in immediate suspension on the first offense.
Although much of the student body would firmly agree that there is no drug scene at BYU-Idaho or even in Rexburg, you’ll find it if you look for it. However, BYU-I students are rarely involved or even interested in illegal drug use. Those students who do get entangled in it are eventually caught and suspended, unless their contact with drugs was determined as brief or they’ve participated in drug use before but abandoned it. Students in those situations are usually placed on a strict probation and must complete counseling.
