A Simple and Supportive Process
Applying for college can be intimidating for any new student. Our experienced, supportive admissions counselors will be there for you every step of the way to answer any questions you have.
Requirements for Admission
Transfer applicants must be in academic good standing and eligible to return to the institution last attended. Therefore, applicants who are on academic suspension or dismissal from the institution last attended are not eligible for admission to USC Upstate.
To be considered for admission, transfer students are required to have a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 GPA scale) in all previous college-level course work.
Apply for Admission
The initial online application makes it a simple process. After applying and submitting the $45 non-refundable application fee, make sure to check the status of your application and keep up to date on the enrollment checklist to stay on track.

How Your Credits Transfer
We have transfer agreements with a number of colleges and universities, which simplifies and streamlines the process for determining which credits you’ve already earned will transfer here. Our experienced advisors will work with you individually every step of the way to map out your graduation plan.
Furthermore, under the Comprehensive Transfer of Credit, we will meet the general education hour requirements for Associate of Arts and Associate of Science graduates from regionally accredited technical colleges. Students without a completed degree will continue to be eligible for course-by-course transfer.
