Admissions FAQ

Are students required to attend New Student Orientation?

Yes, we ask all new students to the University of South Carolina Salkehatchie to attend an orientation session. We feel that orientation prepares our students for what to expect and helps get them finalized to begin their enrollment. Orientations are offered 6 times over the summer prior to the Fall semester and one session is offered on each campus prior to Spring semester. Students can register for orientation here!

What are your admission deadlines?

USC Salkehatchie does not have a formal application deadline, and will work with students to get them enrolled up until the day classes begin. However, we recommend  applying and having all admissions materials to us at least one month prior to the beginning of classes.

What documentation do I need to submit for acceptance?

Incoming Freshmen should submit official high school transcripts or GED information as well as official copies of their ACT/SAT scores. In order for documents to be official they should be sent directly from the High School or testing center and be unopened. Students who have previous college work will need to submit official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended. High school information and test scores may be requested from transfers depending on the number of credit hours attempted at previous institutions. All students under the age of 25 are required to take the ACT or SAT for acceptance to USC Salkehatchie. For your convenience, the ACT is offered several times a year on campus for students who plan to attend.
