The USC Aiken Extended Graduate Campus Office and What We Can Do For You !

Getting Started

To get started the first thing you need to do is apply to the University of South Carolina Graduate School.  Although you may be able to take all your courses on the Aiken campus you are not a USC Aiken student.  You are a USC Columbia student pursuing  your degree through distance education.  USC Aiken's role in these distance education programs is to facilitate the delivery of USC Columbia courses by providing space and assisting with administrative and technology support.  All admission, advisement, registration and records functions are handled by the University of South Carolina's Graduate School.
