Step 1: Create your Login ID and PIN
The first step in the online application process is creating a Login ID and six-digit PIN. Keep this information on hand as you will use it to complete the application process (should you need to stop and restart) and to check the status of your application once it has been submitted.
To create your Login ID and PIN, click on the "Admissions First-Time User" button, located at the bottom of this page.
After you have created your Login ID and PIN, you will continue on to "Select a Campus" to which you are applying, "Select an Application Type," and "Apply for Admissions." Please use the proper upper and lower case letters when filling out your application (Ex: "John Smith" not "JOHN SMITH" or "john smith"). Remember, this will serve as part of your official academic record.
NOTE: Please complete only ONE application per term per campus. If you need to make a change on your application, please call the Admissions Office, but do NOT complete another application.
Step 2: Complete the Application Checklist
You will be directed to the online Application Checklist. You may complete the sections in any order, and you can save your information to complete it at a later time by clicking the "Finish Later" button.
When you have completed all sections of your application, click the "Application is Complete" button to sumbit your application.
Returning to Your Application
The Login ID and PIN you created in Step 1 will allow you to return to complete and/or submit your application. All you will need to do is click on the "Admissions Returning User" button to return to the page where you will enter your Login ID and PIN. This will bring you to the Applications Menu which will display all of your current applications.
Change of Campus or Apply to Another USC System Campus
If you are currently enrolled at another USC System campus and wish to change to Sumter, you will need to complete the Change of Campus electronic application. Click on the admissions first time user icon and complete the Change of Campus form. There is no additional application fee required.
If you have applied to another USC system campus and wish to apply to Sumter, click on the admissions returning user icon and complete the application for the type of admission you desire.
