Scholarships

A USC Salkehatchie education is affordable, though many students need additional help to cover tuition and living expenses. Take a look at these scholarships and find out if you qualify.

In addition to any financial aid you may qualify for after filling out your FAFSA, USC Salkehatchie awards various institutional scholarships to students who demonstrate excellence in academic performance. While the majority of scholarships are awarded based on the October 15 early deadline and February 15 regular deadline, the campus does accept scholarship applications on a rolling basis, and may award scholarships to deserving late applicants as funds are available.

In order to qualify, entering freshmen must either have:

  • scored 1000 or higher on the SAT or 21 or higher on the ACT
    OR
  • be in the top 10% of their graduating class
    OR
  • have a 3.0 high school GPA or better

Current USC Salkehatchie students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better with a minimum of 9 semester hours completed at an accredited college or university AND be enrolled for a minimum of 6 semester hours, taking the majority of their classes at Salkehatchie.
