Apply

Early planning and application is very important in preparation for going abroad. Students may start their application for studying abroad at any time. However, submitted applications will be reviewed only during the application cycle of the respective program. Passport information is not required to start your study abroad application; although a valid passport is required to take part in any international program. 

To begin your application, click the APPLY NOW tab, and you will be prompted to login in using your USC Upstate username and password.

There are two phases in the USC Upstate study abroad application: pre-decision and post-decision. Students who complete the first half of the application will then be asked to confirm or withdraw their application. Students who confirm their participation will then have access to the post-decision portion of the application. All application requirements in both phases of the application must be completed in order for an applicant to participate in a study abroad program. 

After completing the USC Upstate application, students will be given instructions on how to proceed with application through Kingston University.

Reminder:
Before paying the non-refundable application fee and deposit, applicants are encouraged to first complete all other components of the pre-decision application.
