As an undergraduate student, you'll apply to the University of South Carolina, then become part of the Department of Anthropology once you're here. If you have questions before you arrive, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Apply for Undergraduate Admission

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions manages online applications to the university and provides the most comprehensive information on the application process. The admissions office also provides the latest information on application deadlines and university scholarships for S.C. residents and nonresidents. So whether you are applying as a freshman, are looking to transfer to South Carolina or are planning to come to Columbia from another USC campus, you can check the requirements based on your current status (freshman, transfer, non-degree) and apply now.


Apply to Graduate School

The Graduate School coordinates online applications to our master's and doctoral programs. There may be supporting materials that are required along with your online application for graduate admission, so be sure to review the MA degree requirements or PhD degree requirements before you apply. The application deadline to the Graduate School and for all documents requested by the Department of Anthropology are due by January 1. 

Application fee waivers may be requested and taken under advisement. Please contact Dr. Terrance Weik (Graduate Director) at to find out more.
