Welcome to the USC Lancaster Family! Now that you have been admitted, we invite you to use this page as a new student checklist in preparation for the upcoming semester.
Completing your degree at the University of South Carolina will require math and foreign language courses. If you have not already completed these requirements, our placements will help determine which course(s) you need.
- Book an online appointment for course registration.
- Four-year nursing majors (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) will need to click here to book.
- Register for classes through Self Service Carolina under the Student tab (if you do not do this step with your advisor). For assistance with this step, please contact Summer Harmon (firstname.lastname@example.org), Student Success Coordinator. You may also live chat with us.

- Once your final high school and/or college grades are posted, be sure to submit your official transcripts to our Office of Admissions at email@example.com.
Official transcripts must be sent directly from your previous institution (high school or college).
- If you would like to confirm receipt, email admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org or live chat.
- Begin the financial aid process by completing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA).
- Be sure to add USC Lancaster’s school code, 003426.
- Please note: Students starting in the fall semester must complete the 2020-21 application.
We hate we missed you at Welcome Day but you still have time to complete Virtual Orientation! Our Virtual Orientation Portal is designed to be completed at your own pace, so there is not a set day and time that it must be completed. Please call 803-313-7066 to register and pay for the Virtual Orientation Portal. You will need to have your debit or credit card information ready when you call. The $50 fee payment is nonrefundable.
