Direct Master's Accelerator

If you have the academic ability to apply directly to your degree program and you do not need additional English support, the Direct Master’s Accelerator Program (Direct MAP) is the ideal route of entry into UofSC. It is designed to meet the needs of the highest-achieving, bilingual students. 

Through Direct MAP, you will be fully enrolled in your degree-course schedule alongside your fellow domestic students. Students continue into their second semester with 9 degree credits.

  • Gain direct access to the degree program of your choice, and a selection of rigorous courses hand-picked by your academic advisor to match your interests and career goals at no additional cost.
  • Receive a well-rounded educational experience with the help of coaches and mentors who help you get the most out of your time in the United States.
  • Expand your professional network through career preparation and programming that deepens your connection to the university, your fellow classmates and potential employers.
