Sullivan University recognizes the term “cannabis” encompasses a wide range of products that are both inclusive and exclusive of tetrahydrocannabinol compounds. Hemp and other products void of any psychoactive elements are legal in a number of jurisdictions. While products containing psychoactive compounds have been legalized in some states and local jurisdictions, such remains illegal at the federal level. Sullivan University supports and adheres to the requirements of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act of 1989 (DFSCA), and does not allow, promote, endorse or condone illegal use, possession or distribution of illegal substances. Sullivan University’s program teaches theories and principles of business related to the industry along with a responsible perspective related to legal, medical and other considerations. Upon completion of the program, the Career Services department will be able to assist the graduate with traditional career search preparation activities and employment opportunities that are deemed legal according to federal guidelines; however, the department will be unable to assist with direct employment assistance in areas working with products or supply chain entities that do not meet federal regulations and approvals. Students must be a minimum of 21 years of age within 9 months after their start date in the Cannabusiness Studies Certificate program to enroll.
