Program Enhancement Fee*

A program enhancement fee supports the Moore School in its mission to deliver business education and experiences to our undergraduates that yield lifetime benefits.

The fee supports:

  • Extensive course offerings across nine majors
  • Rigorous curriculum content
  • Project-based learning
  • Faculty with world-class expertise
  • Comprehensive career development and placement services
  • Individualized advisement
  • Experiential learning opportunities

  • Investments in student success

*The program enhancement fee is subject to change upon approval of the Board of Trustees at the University of South Carolina.

A fee is assessed and billed with tuition, beginning with the student's first semester, and is charged every semester thereafter. It is assessed for fall and spring semesters only (excludes summer). For questions concerning the fee schedule, please contact the Undergraduate Division.

General Scholarships and Awards

During the 2018-19 academic year, more than 400 Moore School students received more than $900,000 from donor-funded scholarships. The awarding of Moore School scholarships is managed through a single electronic application so students only need to complete one application to be considered for all scholarships for which they meet scholarship criteria.

Applicants for general undergraduate business scholarships for academic year 2019-20 must complete an undergraduate scholarship application and submit it electronically. Please complete the appropriate Scholarship Application in its entirety. Thoroughly completing the application, including the optional questions, could broaden the scholarships for which you are considered because they help identify applicants who meet specific criteria.

Applications opened January 2019. There are two applications with different deadlines for 2019-20 scholarships (one for returning students and one for new students). Late submissions will not be accepted.  

Renewal applicants

Current recipients of Moore School general scholarships (2018-19 academic year) must reapply to be considered for the 2019-20 academic year. Scholarships are not automatically renewed.

General guidelines

Moore School general scholarships are competitive and limited. The number and amount of scholarships awarded vary and are subject to available funds. Recipients who do not enroll or transfer from the Moore School to another college forfeit any previously awarded Moore School scholarships. Other scholarships may be available through UofSC's Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Notification of scholarship status

General scholarship recipient notifications will be sent via email and will include the amount and name of the scholarship award.
