Important Announcement (6/30/21): This is an official notice that although the recreational use of marijuana is now legal in Connecticut and other states, UConn is required to continue testing for the presence of marijuana and to share drug test results that are positive for marijuana with placement facility sites (Facilities). There has been no indication that Facilities will be revising their drug testing requirements. As such, it is most likely that Facilities will deem drug test results that are positive for marijuana (including marijuana used for medical purposes with a valid prescription) as failing to meet their drug testing requirements. UConn Programs are not responsible for arranging placements for students who are unable to meet a Facility’s requirements. Additionally, even if such a Facility can be identified, there is no guarantee that a student who has tested positive for marijuana can be placed at that specific Facility. Students who do have a prescription for medical use of marijuana are strongly encouraged to inform the clinical case manager in advance of the drug screening. Please also be aware that, under some contracts between UConn and Facilities, the Facility can require random drug screens of students placed at the Facility at any time without giving notice to UConn or to the student. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to email@example.com.
