Special Students

The special student classification is designed for persons who want to take college courses but who have no interest in pursuing a degree. Applicants who are denied regular admission to South Carolina State University are not eligible to apply as special students. Evidence of high school graduation or GED is required of each applicant. Special students may enroll for a maximum of eighteen undergraduate hours. At the beginning of each semester, students must submit a new application. Special students who have completed eighteen hours or less may apply to South Carolina State University under the regular admission requirements. If admitted, the work previously taken in this classification may apply toward a degree at the University only if the courses are applicable to major curriculum.
