Sanctions for Smoking Policy Violations

The following actions will likely be taken for students found responsible for violations of the Campus Smoking Policy:

  • First Offense - Meeting with an administrator in Student Life
  • Second Offense - Deferred probation, discussion circle including review of fire safety videos and/or other health-based educational materials 
  • Third Offense - Probation and one or more of the following at the discretion of the conduct administrator or board: community service, educational project, deferred housing restrictions status
  • Fourth Offense - Removal from campus housing. (For students living off campus, Probation may be extended with additional sanctions applied.)

For residential communities (floors, mods, etc.) where smoking is occurring and individuals are not identified, community discussion circles may be required as well as other outcomes at the discretion of the area coordinator.

Conduct meeting administrators have the right to deviate from these sanctioning guidelines if after meeting with a student a different path would be more beneficial to the student’s or the community’s growth and success.
