The Medical University of South Carolina is committed to transparency about the funds it uses and accountability to the students, taxpayers, sponsors, donors, and alumni it serves. Each of these groups provides critical funding necessary to meet the University's mission-related responsibilities of teaching, research, and public service.
The spending transparency website provides the information for all expenses paid through the University's vendor system or with state-approved procurement credit cards. Information about salaries can be found at the S.C. Department of Administration website consistent with the S.C. Freedom of Information Act.
The University is considered two agencies by the State: a teaching and research university that receives funding for Education and General spending and a South Carolina Area Health Education Consortium which receives funding to help improve the health of South Carolina’s citizens.
The University also has auxiliary departments that receive no state funding and must generate all of their own revenue. Examples include the Bookstore and Parking Services.
