An Exceptional Reputation

We are the university of South Carolina’s beautiful and thriving Upstate region.

You may be able to attend at either our Greenville Campus, near a thriving urban center and rich with academic and professional opportunities; or our Spartanburg Campus, a beautiful 330-acre setting conveniently located near the intersection of interstates 85 and 26 and featuring the most modern facilities and advanced technology.

Several of our adult learner programs can be completed entirely online, and our hybrid learning model will enable you to complete more than 70 percent of your credits online, with the small remainder completed on site at one of our two campus locations.
