Possession, Use of Tobacco

Students are not permitted to use or possess tobacco or nicotine of any kind in any form. If a student violates these rules:

  • The first offense will result in a Letter of Reprimand, seven hours of work detail, and a follow-up with the Health Center to review the health implications of tobacco/nicotine use and to assess current impact.
  • A second offense will result in a Disciplinary Committee hearing.

Deerfield is a smoke-free campus. Guests may not smoke or use vaporizers anywhere on Academy grounds. Deerfield hosts should monitor their guests’ adherence to this rule.

Students found to have used nicotine will thereafter be tested exclusively for that substance in accordance with the Academy’s prospective testing policy.
