In accordance with the “Tobacco 21” legislation signed into law on December 20, 2019, amending the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act, and raising the federal minimum age for the sale of tobacco products from 18 to 21, students on ARCC gap semesters will not be permitted to purchase, obtain, possess, or consume tobacco products. This includes, but is not limited to, cigarettes, chewing tobacco, vape pens, and e-cigarettes.
At no time is the smoking of marijuana permitted. Marijuana is considered a drug and a violation of this rule will get a student sent home.
If you are sent home for any of the above reasons, ARCC will not grant a refund and you will be responsible for any costs incurred by ARCC to get you home. This may include hotels, ground transportation, and flight change fees.
