Congratulations, and welcome to the Gamecock family! Now that you’ve been accepted, you’re one step closer to officially #GoingGarnet, and this is your one-stop shop as you prepare for your first year as a Gamecock.

Live your Best Student Life

Being a Gamecock is about more than the classes you’ll take. It’s also about the experiences you’ll have, the friends you’ll make and the future you’ll create.

What's next?

Now, let’s make this official. Visit your UofSC Admissions Portal to submit your enrollment deposit form and save your seat in the Class of 2025! You can also get involved by attending our virtual events for admitted students. We’re hosting academic sessions, roundtable discussions with current students, and sessions covering financial aid and housing, plus live chats with fellow Gamecocks — even the official rules for how to play cornhole! 


Our university is a very special place with countless opportunities for you to discover your passion and develop your skills.

As I walk these brick pathways, I can't help but think about the old and new here, and all the students who have come before me and will come after me. I'm thrilled to be a part of that tradition.
