Provisional admission is designed for students who show promise of success in a collegiate environment but are in need of further academic development. Provisional admission is determined by the Vice President for Enrollment Services and the Academic Life Committee. This determination is made after receipt of SAT/ACT scores and additional information for freshmen students or transcripts for transferring students. Provisionally accepted students may enroll in 12 to 16 credit hours per semester.
Provisionally accepted students who are receiving Hope, Life, or Palmetto Scholarships are exempt from that limit. If the provisionally-admitted student successfully completes the semester, as determined by the Provost, regular admission will be recommended. If the student’s academic performance is unsatisfactory, the provisional status may be continued or suspension from the University may result. Provisional admission may be sought by the student in correspondence with the Vice President for Enrollment Services.
