Breaks, Food, and Drinks
During experiential learning, food and drinks may only be consumed on breaks in designated areas. Learners may not leave the experiential learnings sites during breaks.

Tobacco, Cigarettes, Vapes
Tobacco, electronic cigarettes, vapes, smoking, etc. are not permitted within twenty-five (25) feet of any SOFE site entrance, exit, or window. Those who smoke or vape should consider the possible residual odor that may adversely affect others, including patients. Smoking, including use of electronic cigarettes, vapes, and chewing tobacco are not permitted during experiential learning.

Professional Telecommunications
Learners should identify that all telecommunication meetings or calls should be viewed as professional settings and learners should comport themselves to their highest standard of conduct. When using video conferencing technology, learners must maintain dress and grooming standards as outlined within the Learner Attire section of the Catalog.

Learners’ mobile phones may not be used for making or receiving calls, texts, direct messages, etc. while engaged in experiential learning activities or during exams. If it is necessary to make an emergency communication while at a DFC facility, learners should get permission from their DFC faculty and go outside of the facility to use the phone.
