Congratulations and welcome to the University of South Carolina Upstate! We are one of the fastest-growing universities in South Carolina and one of the leading metropolitan universities in the southeast.
USC Upstate is a community of faculty and staff, and 5,500 students from 29 states and 14 nations. Our beautiful, 330-acre campus is located in Spartanburg, SC, which is a college town situated along the thriving I-85 economic corridor and within driving distance of beaches, the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains and the professional, cultural and lifestyle possibilities offered by Atlanta and Charlotte.
It’s the perfect place to start you on the path to your future, and we are thrilled you are considering USC Upstate as the beginning of that path. The information below will guide you through the steps you need to take now in order to prepare to join the USC Upstate family. The transition to college is a big one, and we want to be there for you every step of the way. We’re here to guide you, inspire you, encourage you and to let you be "you."
