Diversity, Access and Inclusion

The backgrounds of your educators, your classmates' perspectives and learning from new experiences are invaluable to education and personal growth. At the University of South Carolina, you can explore different cultures, experiences, talents and perspectives in your studies and life, every day.

Perspectives that strengthen your education 

The University of South Carolina strives to admit, enroll and retain classes that reflect our state's diverse population. To increase access and enhance diversity, we host interest events and outreach visits throughout the year to welcome and support those who seek the many benefits of a South Carolina education. 

Join our community

Seeing someone who looked like me doing what they wanted to do in the field that I wanted to be in was groundbreaking for my career.
