Transfer Students

A transfer applicant is an individual who has attended another regionally accredited college or university following graduation of high school or completion of a GED. 


  • Apply online
  • Have your official transcripts from each college attended sent directly to:

    USC Sumter Admissions Services
    200 Miller Road
    Sumter, SC 29150

Transfer applicants must have a Cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher (4.0 scale). If fewer than 30 semester hours (45 quarter hours) of college-level work have been attempted, the applicant must also meet freshman admission requirements.

Transfer Applicants Must Submit:

  • Completed Application for Admission & Application Fee 
  • Official Transcripts
    • Transcripts from all regionally accredited colleges and universities attended are required.
    • Transcripts with in-progress work will not be accepted.
    • If less than 30 semester hours (45 quarter hours) of college-level work were attempted, official high school transcripts or GED test scores are also required.

Important Notes:

  • A transfer grade point average is calculated using all credits attempted and all grades earned on college-level courses at regionally accredited institutions outside the USC System. 
  • Applicants with a GPA less than 2.0 (4.0 scale) will be reviewed by the designated admissions committee for a determination on admission to the institution.
  • Applicants can update their start term within 365 days of submission.

Transfer applicants are encouraged to apply 6-12 months prior to the term for which they seek admission. However, applications for admission will be accepted and reviewed year-round.
