    We are pleased to offer campus tours Monday through Friday at 9 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. with an additional 10 a.m. tour available on Mondays and Fridays.  Starting May 13, campus tour times will be limited to 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. and subject to current student guide availability.  

    Some quick information to note before you plan your visit:

    Due to capacity limits, we are only accepting ONE registration per prospective student. If you register for a visit and need to change your visit to a different date, you must cancel your current registration before you can register for the new date.
     Between March 4 and April 30, we will prioritize campus visit registration for students seeking to enroll for the fall of 2024 (high school seniors and transfer students), spring of 2025 (transfer students), and fall of 2025 (high school juniors).  We recommend exploring our self-guided tour options for all other grade levels. 
    Campus tours have limited access to academic buildings and our student union. Residence halls are unable to be shown at this time.
    Each registrant is limited to 3 guests.

    Alternative Tour Option
    If you are interested in a general campus tour and they are not available, or if you would prefer to explore our campus at your own pace, please request information about our self-guided tour.

    What are my virtual visit options? 
    The Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Visitor Center are offering a number of virtual events and activities to bring USC to you. Please visit our virtual series website to find ways to connect with USC.

    The following on-campus options may be available to help you tailor your visit to fit your interests.

    General Campus Tour
    Learn all about Gamecock life during a two-hour campus tour. Each tour begins with a 20-minute presentation covering the admissions process, financial aid and scholarships. Then, guests spend 90-100 minutes exploring campus guided by a University Ambassador. 

    Express Campus Tour
    Guests spend 90-100 minutes exploring campus guided by a University Ambassador, but these events do not include a 20-minute presentation from Admissions. Express campus tours are recommended for second-time visitors or admitted students, but are open to all.
