Institution publishes admissions policies that are consistent with its mission.
Consistent with the University of South Carolina Upstate (USC Upstate) metropolitan mission, admissions policies are appropriate and include guidelines for all students including on campus, off campus, and distance learning. USC Upstate’s primary responsibility is to offer baccalaureate education and select master’s degrees to the citizens of the Upstate. The undergraduate and graduate admissions policies are published in the 2011-2012 Academic Catalog and are available on the website. Detailed transfer and articulation agreements are developed with partner institutions. For example, an articulation program, Upstate Direct Connect, was developed with select two-year institutions to assist students completing associate degrees to transfer to USC Upstate to continue toward a baccalaureate degree. Articulation agreements are also signed with international partner institutions. Periodic meetings between the partner institutions and the appropriate faculty allow for the review and revision of the agreements as needed.
