Frequently Asked Questions
We realize this is an unusual time for students and that access to testing is not the same as before the pandemic. We want to assure students they will be considered for admission to UofSC even if they cannot sit for a test.
All applications will go through a holistic review process regardless if a student submits test scores. During this process, we will review a student within the context of their environment, high school grades, course requirements, application essay and additional supplemental materials.
Freshman admission to UofSC is primarily based on high school courses, grades and supplemental materials submitted with the application. We encourage you to visit our requirements page for more details.
After you submit your application, you will be asked to complete a Supplemental Materials Form where you can indicate which item(s) you plan to submit, including your test scores. Your Supplemental Materials Form will be available on your UofSC Admissions Portal after you apply.
