Apply for Admission

If you plan to attend the University of South Carolina, the first thing you will need to do is apply online to the university. USC offers many exceptional programs in both Graduate and Undergraduate studies. You should plan to do a little research about the program you plan to pursue before you apply. Please be aware that admission requirements may vary between programs.

Undergraduate Admissions

Interested in pursuing a Bachelors degree? Look no further! USC is well-known for its high quality undergraduate programs, offering 85 different undergraduate degrees, including the #1 International Business program in America. Before you apply, take some time to review the variety of majors and programs offered. Which major will you choose?


Graduate Admissions

Are you ready to get your Masters? How about a Doctorate? USC's graduate programs will give you the degree you need to advance your career and achieve your dreams. The Carnegie Foundation has placed USC among the top research institutions in the United States. With over 240 graduate programs offered, you'll be sure to find an area that you can pursue with passion.

Admission to a graduate program is a two step process. You must first be admitted to your academic program. After receiving admission from your program, the Graduate School must also admit you. Once you have received an admission notification from both your department and USC's Graduate School, you will then be considered "officially" admitted.


Conditional Admission
