Students

When a student is observed using a tobacco product in violation of the policy, the person who observed the behavior tells the student that he or she is in violation of the College’s Policy, referencing the Tobacco Free Policy. The student is asked for their name and their student id number so the observer can complete the Tobacco Incident Form. If the student indicates they do not have or know their id number, he or she is then treated as a visitor to campus violating the policy. If the student provides the necessary information, the observer completes the form and submits the form to the Vice President of Student Affairs.
