Board Policy: Tobacco-Free Campus - 428.01

Johnson County Community College strongly encourages a tobacco free campus; see JCCC Policy 428.01 – Tobacco-Free Campus. To that end the Johnson County Police Department can fine those using tobacco products outside one’s vehicle or outside the designated areas.


The first violation of the Tobacco-Free Campus Policy will be $10. Any additional violation(s) and/or unpaid violation(s) on file can result in additional penalties.

Student Violation of Policy

Students who have received one (1) unpaid tobacco violation after 10 business days will have their records placed on “hold.” This action will prevent the student from adding or dropping classes, enrolling in future classes and obtaining a copy of his or her transcript until all fines are paid.

Faculty and Staff Violation of Policy

Any faculty or staff member with one (1) or more unpaid tobacco violation(s) on file will be referred to the appropriate dean or department head.

Appeal Process

Any person who feels he/she has been unjustly ticketed may appeal. 

Appeals must be received within (10) business days after issuance of the ticket or the right to appeal is forfeited. All appeals of tobacco violations will be considered with respect to the current Johnson County Community College tobacco-free campus policy.
