NCAA BANNED DRUG INFORMATION
The NCAA Drug-Testing Program was created to protect the health and safety of student-athletes and ensure that no one participate might have an artificially induced advantage or be pressured to use chemical substances. This program is in harmony with Pepperdine's mission.
When you arrive at Pepperdine you will be fully introduced to this program. However, it is important that you have access to particular information regarding "banned drugs" and "nutritional supplements" before your arrival on campus.
It is in your best interest to educate yourself about "banned drugs" and the details of nutritional supplement use. In order to assist you, we would direct your attention to two comprehensive websites sponsored by the NCAA and the National Center for Drug Free Sport:
The banned substance lists within the above websites provided do not eliminate the student-athlete's responsibility to comply with Pepperdine policies that may extend beyond this list and can be found in the Seaver College Student Handbook.
