The Non-Residential Bridge Program at the University of South Carolina provides a pathway to students at South Carolina's technical colleges who want to transfer to UofSC-Columbia after completing 30 hours.
The university and technical colleges will identify and contact students who are eligible for the Non-Residential Bridge Program. Participating students will have access to a variety of services from the university's admissions and financial aid offices, the Career Center, and the Student Success Center.
Students who are recent high school graduates and first-time college attendees are ideal candidates for the Non-Residential Bridge Program. Before transferring to UofSC-Columbia, students generally will complete 30 credit hours at one of SC's Technical Colleges. The university also may identify other students who would benefit from the Non-Residential Bridge Program and its services.
Students who apply to the University of South Carolina and are eligible for the Non-Residential Bridge Program will receive information from Undergraduate Admissions. Students who do not apply to UofSC as incoming freshmen should meet with a university admissions counselor or with the Non-Residential Bridge Program representatives at their technical college to determine their eligibility for the program.
