Letters of Recommendation
We ask that students not send letters of recommendation unless they are applying to South Carolina Honors College. Letters of recommendation ARE NOT REQUIRED for general university admissions consideration. Honors College applicants must have two letters of recommendation submitted on their behalf. We prefer recommenders complete the Honors College Recommendation form generated by USC's online application. Students are advised to have the name and email address of each recommender while completing the Honors portion of the application. This will help the writer submit the recommendation in a more timely fashion. If the letters are mailed, then they must include “ATTN: Honors College Processing” on the envelope to ensure delivery. US Mail is our least preferred method of delivery since it slows processing time.
