International Applicants

International students comprise about 15 percent of the graduate student population and 30 percent of doctoral students at the University of South Carolina.

The University of South Carolina welcomes international student applications. With so many important arrangements to make, we recommend that you apply at least nine months before the semester in which you plan to begin your studies.

Pre-Pharmacy Applicants

If you’re applying as an international freshman or international transfer, there are certain steps you will be required to take as part of your admissions process.

Pharm.D. Applicants

International applicants must meet the Pharm.D. program's admissions requirements and submit general application materials. As an international applicant, you must also complete a few additional steps in order to apply to our program. The College of Pharmacy admits individual applicants and applicants from our international partnership program.

Graduate Applicants (Master's or Ph.D. Program)

Along with an application for graduate admission, international students may be required to submit and meet specific language proficiency requirements in the reading, writing and speaking of English.
