Guidelines for Tobacco-Free Student Compliance

Students need to be aware that it is their responsibility to be in compliance with DMACC's tobacco-free policy, as with any other DMACC policy, or state or federal law while on DMACC property.

Effective January 1, 2009, whenever a student is seen by a DMACC faculty or staff member as not complying with the DMACC tobacco-free policy, the student will be asked to provide their name and student ID number.

Each time the student is in violation he/she will be sent a letter.

First Violation: A letter will be sent to the student by the Executive Dean of Student Services explaining that they have been observed not complying with DMACC's tobacco-free policy.

Second Violation: A letter will be sent to the student by the Executive Dean of Student Services requiring the student to meet with either their Campus Provost, Associate Campus Provost or Judicial Officer for a Disciplinary Conference to discuss the alleged violations of the Tobacco Free Campus Policy.

Third Violation: A letter will be sent to the student informing the student that they are being fined $50 for violation of the DMACC Tobacco Free Campus Policy.

Subsequent Violations: $50 fine for each violation.
