How a DUI Can Impact Your College Experience

College is an exciting time for any young adult. For many, it is a time for many experiences: living in a dorm, rushing a fraternity or sorority, meeting new people, cheering at sports games, going to parties, etc. For any students trying to enjoy their college experience, hopefully, one of those moments you get to live though is not being arrested for a DUI.

Driving under the influence convictions can impact your entire life. It can cost you tons in fines, require jail time, revoke your driving privileges, and more. But can it impact your college experience? The answer to this question is yes!

If you are a college student, a DUI on your record can cause you to:

  • Lose your scholarships or financial aid
  • Be kicked off of a sports team or college organization
  • Lose access to student or campus housing

It can also impact your future by:

  • Affecting your ability to pursue a degree in law, medicine, or nursing
  • Keeping you from pursuing a career in education or government
  • Keeping you from pursuing a career that needs security clearance
  • Making it difficult to get a job after college in general
