The Place for High Achievers
Capstone Scholars are interested in getting the most of their education, whether that
occurs inside or outside of the classroom. You can find Capstone Scholars among our
university's researchers, student leaders, entrepreneurs and top award recipients.
An Exclusive Community
The Capstone Scholars Program is invitation-only. Every student that is invited to join us has a very competitive grade point average, a university scholarship and high standardized test scores.
When you join Capstone, you're joining the top group of academic performers at Carolina.
To learn more about the typical profile for incoming Capstone Scholar invitees, please
contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Staff members will meet with you at least once a semester to learn about your goals
and help you make a plan to achieve them. They will also help you stay on track to
meet Capstone's standards and requirements.
The Capstone Scholars Program has been an essential part of my college experience.

Living With Us
Capstone Scholars don't have to live in the Capstone Scholars Village, but doing so makes for a richer experience.
A Fast Walk to Class
Both residence halls in Capstone Village are organized by suites, which means that two students share a room and two of these rooms share a common area. Housing's residence hall site offers samples of floor plans for each community on campus, including traditional and apartment arrangements.
Applying to be a Capstone Scholar
The Capstone Scholars Program accepts students by invitation only. When you apply
for admission to UofSC, you will be considered for Capstone. Invited students will
be notified in March.
