We provide a quality education, and we help you take advantage of everything we have to offer. You can stay close to home or work for your first two years then finish online or on campus. You can make it work. Your time is now!
Established in 1959, ours is the oldest of the University of South Carolina’s four regional campuses. Since then, the campus and student body have grown, but our mission remains the same. We are devoted to preparing students to continue their education in the University and throughout life.
We admit all students who show promise of academic success. Most of our students are first generation college students from rural areas, small towns, and cities across the central Piedmont area of the Carolinas. Through a broad commitment to equity, an extensive scholarship and financial aid program, and a variety of weekday and evening course offerings, University of South Carolina Lancaster seeks to make education accessible, affordable, and convenient to the residents of this area.
