The University of South Carolina Upstate has developed dual degree program agreements with partner institutions abroad. Such agreements provide students from certain majors the option to apply for admission as an exchange student in the dual degree program. Students complete a pre-determined number of credit hours and program requirements at each institution. Upon satisfying all program requirements at both institutions, students will apply for graduation in order to be awarded a degree from each university.
Students accepted into the exchange program pay tuition and fees at their home university, not the host institution. Currently, the dual degree exchange program at USC Upstate is accepting applications from University of Applied Sciences Landshut (UAS Landshut) students who majoring in Business, Computer Science, or Informatics.
UAS Landshut students would travel and study at USC Upstate for one academic year. After completing their coursework at USC Upstate, students will return to Landshut to finish the remainder of their degree requirements at UAS Landshut.
Upon graduation from UAS Landshut, students will send an official transcript from UAS Landshut and submit an online application for graduation at USC Upstate in order to receive their degree from USC Upstate.
Semester study abroad option is available to UAS Landshut students from other majors. Acceptance into the exchange program will depend on space availability. If not accepted into the exchange program, students may be invited to participate.
The University of South Carolina Upstate is a public university. We welcome students from universities
around the world to enroll for one semester or academic year and earn academic credits towards
degree completion at their home university.
Admitted visiting or exchange students at USC Upstate will be enrolled as short-term, degree-seeking students on an F-1 student visa category. Students who satisfy enrollment requirements and pre-requisites will be enrolled in pre-determined list of courses available in the corresponding semester at USC Upstate. Students will need to obtain pre-approval (learning agreement) from their home university faculty for the transferability of course credits earned at USC Upstate.
