Over the past ten days, the campaign to repeal the drug provision of the Higher Education Act has gained the support of student governments at Yale University, University of Texas at Austin and Douglas College at Rutgers University as well as by the Association of Big Ten Schools. The drug provision, which denies or delays financial aid eligibility to any student for any drug conviction, goes into effect this year.

At Yale, the student association not only called for repeal, but also urged the school's administration to make up for any financial aid lost to the new law.

A more complete update on the HEA campaign will appear in The Week Online next week.
