Opportunity Scholars Program
The TRIO Opportunity Scholars Program (OSP) encourages student success at the University of South Carolina by creating a small college atmosphere that includes academic support services and allowing students to take core freshman-level classes from faculty and staff especially prepared to meet the needs and concerns of our OSP students.
The program provides tutoring assistance, academic advising, guidance on undergraduate research and study abroad opportunities, mentoring, workshops, and cultural enrichment opportunities. Additionally, freshmen taking three or more OSP courses receive significant tuition reduction.
OSP has a history of success. Participants generally graduate at a rate higher than the average for the general student population.
