Now in its 50th year, the University of South Carolina Upstate continues to strive toward its vision of becoming one of the Southeast's leading “metropolitan” universities.
The University aims to be recognized nationally among its peer metropolitan institutions for its excellence in education and commitment to its students, for its involvement in the region, for its civility and common purpose, and for the clarity and integrity of its mission. USC Upstate strives to prepare its students to participate as responsible citizens in a diverse, global and knowledge-based society, to pursue excellence in their chosen careers and to continue learning throughout life. Curricula and services are designed for a student population vastly diverse in background, age, race, ethnicity, educational experience and academic goals.
USC Upstate is proud to be home to many international students from a wide variety of countries. We have students from 36 states and 51 countries on our campus.
Consistent with the international character of the Upstate, the University promotes global perspectives across its programs. Supporting the regional employment objectives of most of its students, it provides extensive experiential learning opportunities.
