University of South Carolina


EPI Intensive English and Conditional Admission

Undergraduate students interested in conditional admission should complete the undergraduate admissions application. In section 5 (Internationals) of the online application, students will need to indicate their interest in English Programs for Internationals (Intensive English) by selecting “yes” to the first question. You should also select "yes" to the next question if you would like to be considered for a conditional admit. Students graduating from high school should complete the international freshman application. Students who have completed any university undergraduate coursework after graduating from secondary or high school should complete the international transfer application. A university representative will contact you with next steps for enrolling in English Programs for Internationals once you have completed the application and been conditionally admitted.
