The Gateway Experience 

We know how important it is for students to get the full college experience. That is why Gamecock Gateway students will have access to USC services like intramural sports, fitness centers, campus dining, libraries, the Student Success Center, Student Health Services, Counseling and Psychiatry and more. Like all USC students, Gateway students can also attend any USC athletic event and participate in Student Life opportunities! Midlands Technical College also offers services to Gateway students, like the Academic Success Center, Counseling Center, and more—so that Gateway students are supported in every aspect of their college career.

Gateway Student Spotlight



There are only a few restrictions Gamecock Gateway students have on USC's campus. Gamecock Gateway participants cannot:

  • join social fraternities or sororities
  • hold office in a club or organization
  • be part of a club or organization that requires enrollment in a USC course (including ROTC)
  • participate in intercollegiate athletics*

However, these opportunities will be available to you when you transfer and enroll as a full-time USC student.

*Gamecock Gateway students can participate in some sport clubs. If you have questions about specific sports, reach out to Campus Recreation at 803-576-9377. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
