Smoke-Tobacco-Vape Free SCC

SCC is a smoke, vape, and tobacco-free campus as of August 20, 2016.

A Smoke-Tobacco-Vape Free environment is an essential element in creating and maintaining a culture of health and safety at the college. This Environmental Standard (ES) has been adopted by all SCC campuses and applies to all SCC students, staff, faculty, and visitors.

We ask that you not smoke, vape, or use any tobacco products on campus. Tobacco use includes smoking, chewing, dipping, or any other use of tobacco products. Smoking refers to inhaling, exhaling, burning, or carrying of any lighted or heated tobacco product, as well as non-tobacco smoking substances and smoking instruments.

This includes but is not limited to the following:

  • cigarettes
  • e-cigarettes
  • cigars
  • snuff
  • snus
  • water pipes
  • pipes
  • hookahs
  • chew
  • any other non-combustible tobacco product

Why Is SCC Smoke-Tobacco-Vape Free?

While the use of tobacco is a personal choice, the health hazards related to smoking and exposure to second- and third-hand smoke are well-documented. These hazards can affect not only the smoker, but also the nonsmoker who is exposed to the smoke. The college recognizes its responsibility to exercise leadership through the creation of a Smoke-Tobacco-Vape Free environment for all students, faculty, staff and visitors at all Sacramento City College campuses.
