Welcome to the USC Sumter Family! Now that you have been admitted, we invite you to use this page as a new student checklist in preparation for the upcoming semester.
Due to COVID-19, we have moved the majority of our orientation online. Once you complete the orientation checklist you may schedule an optional in-person information and tour session on campus. We can't wait to meet you, whether it's online or in-person!
If you have questions or need assistance regarding the items below, please feel free to contact our Office of Student Life by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 803-500-4831(call or text).
