Established in 1959, USC Lancaster admits all students
who show promise of academic success. Most of USCL's
students are first generation college students from rural
areas, small towns, and cities across the central Piedmont
area of the Carolinas. Through a broad commitment
to equity, an extensive scholarship and financial aid program,
and a variety of weekday and evening course offerings, USC
Lancaster seeks to make education accessible, affordable,
and convenient to the residents of this area.
We are more than proud of our history, we are also excited
about the future. In 2000, USC Lancaster opened
a $10.7 million building, the James A. Bradley Arts and
Sciences Building. In 2003, the campus completed
another major building project with the expansion and
renovation of Medford
Library. In 2005, the campus opened the Carole Ray
Dowling Center on newly acquired
property adjacent to the campus.
In 2013, the campus broke ground on a new classroom building,
Founders Hall, to be opened in 2014.
