Tobacco Free Upstate

Tobacco–Free Upstate 

The University of South Carolina Upstate is concerned about the toll that smoking and tobacco use has on the health and well-being of the University community. As a public institution of higher education with departments that have interest in and treat the effects of smoking, second-hand smoke, and other tobacco use, USC Upstate believes it has an obligation to exercise leadership by promoting a healthy tobacco-free environment for its students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

Effective August 1, 2011  the USC Upstate Department of Public Safety has the sole authority to fine individuals (employees, students and/or campus visitors, contractors, vendors, etc.) for violating the campus tobacco-free policy. 

The following fines will apply:

  • 1st Offense          $25.00  
  • 2nd Offense         $50.00
  • 3rd Offense         $75.00 (and all subsequent offenses)
