South Carolina is for out-of-state students.

When you think of South Carolina you think of four seasons (each offering its own beauty), southern hospitality, historic and vacation locations, and some of the best colleges in the country, including USC Aiken!

Transportation Advantage

You may have a car on campus as a freshman.  In addition, we provide a mini-convenience store on campus which supplies a variety of items such as microwave meals, socks, etc.  We also have a bus system that stops on campus (we even have a sheltered bus stop on campus).  It makes stops to several places in Aiken.  For more information go to

However, for the most part, the social life of the student body is on-campus, so there are few reasons to need a car.  Our campus is just the right size for you to get involved.  You can get connected through Greek life, community service, sports, theatre, music, academic clubs, or student government - just to name a few.

Location, Location, Location

USC Aiken is located in beautiful Aiken, SC.  Aiken is well-known throughout the country as an equestrian community, with numerous equestrian events such as Aiken's Triple Crown.  South Carolina offers the best of both worlds due to the friendliness and convenience of a small town and the opportunities and amenities of a larger city.  Located in the western region of South Carolina, Aiken is 40 miles from the capital city of Columbia and 20 miles from Augusta, GA.  It is also 2 1/2 hours from Charlotte, Atlanta and Charleston, SC.
