In November 2007, University of South Carolina and SC Technical College System officials signed a historic agreement expanding some of the University's most successful student programs to technical college students who plan to transfer to the University's Columbia campus.
The Bridge Program created in the agreement is intended to make transitions from S.C. technical colleges to the University as seamless as possible and to increase the success of transfer students once they're enrolled at the Columbia campus.
The University and technical colleges will identify and contact students who are eligible for the Bridge Program. Participating students will have access to a variety of services from the University's admissions, housing, and financial aid offices, the Career Center, and the Student Success Center.
