Parole, Pardon & Release

Parole, Pardon & Release

If you plan to attend a hearing to oppose parole, please notify us in advance. If you plan to attend a hearing to support parole, please contact the SC Department of Corrections.  The criteria for inmate parole consideration can be found here. Please view the 2024 SC Parole Board of Paroles and Pardons Calendar.

At times, circumstances may require that members of the SC Board of Paroles and Pardons participate virtually from remote locations.  This is part of our effort to ensure an uninterrupted parole/pardon hearing process. Automated pardon records are not available for hearings conducted prior to July 7, 2021.
