University of South Carolina

Admissions


Congratulations!

Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of South Carolina!

We're thrilled that you are considering joining the University of South Carolina. We've dedicated this page to resources, links, and forms you'll need to become an enrolled student. We want to make the process as easy as possible for you.

The first thing you'll need to do to conduct business with the University of South Carolina is set up your online account in Self Service Carolina. Self Service Carolina is where you'll go to pay your enrollment deposit, sign up for housing later this spring, and ultimately register for classes. Setting your account up is simple.

Make sure you have your acceptance letter on hand. The second page of the letter contains your VIP ID and the last four digits of your USC ID. You'll need these credentials to set up your password for Self Service Carolina. Click here to claim your VIP ID and set up access to your account:

Claim my VIP ID

Make note of both your VIP ID and your password.

If you have already claimed your VIP ID and set up your password, you can return to Self Service Carolina and access your online account by clicking here: https://ssb.onecarolina.sc.edu. You'll use your VIP ID and the password you created when you claimed your VIP ID.
