Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

Freshman applicants who satisfy the course requirements listed in the USC Undergraduate Bulletin will be evaluated on the basis of high-school grades, class rank, and entrance examination scores. These factors will be used to determine the applicant’s probability of completing the requirements for the desired degree. Seventy-five percent of admitted 2015 freshmen scored an 1130 or higher on the SAT (critical reading and math sections combined) or a 24 or higher on the ACT and also earned a GPA of at least 3.59 on a 4.0 scale.Students who complete the required 18 high school academic units with at least a “B” (3.00) average and earn scores as mentioned above are usually competitive for admission.

Recommendations

Qualified students at USC have the opportunity to participate in the University’s Honors College. A special application for admission into the South Carolina Honors College is required. Most students in the college enter as freshmen. Students who have already completed at least one semester " at USC or elsewhere " may apply as transfer students. Details are provided in the USC Undergraduate Bulletin. Those who wish to participate in the college should contact the Coordinator of High Ability Admissions in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
