Non-Freshman Deadlines

Students applying as non-freshmen must still meet application and supplemental material deadlines. The deadlines are different for each application type, so read these dates carefully.

We want to update you on your admissions status as soon as possible, so be proactive! Please pay close attention to the following deadlines. The University of South Carolina reserves the right to close transfer admission for any program at any time due to enrollment limitations.

Spring 2021 transfer applications must be submitted by November 15.

Please be advised that admission into the Darla Moore School of Business is restricted to the summer and fall terms only, and it is possible that some other programs will reach capacity by the end of November. If your preferred major is closed for admission, you may be asked if you wish to consider another major. Also, if we do not receive your official transcripts or if you have not yet completed prerequisite classes with the required minimum GPA by the stated deadlines, your application is subject to cancellation and you will be advised to update your application for future term consideration.

We strongly encourage you to submit all official credentials within two weeks of applying.
