Student Affairs & Academic Support
Gamecock Guarantee

At the University of South Carolina, we believe our historic gates should be open to all academically qualified students — regardless of their family’s finances. With help from generous donors like you, the Gamecock Guarantee can help meet students’ financial needs and support their dreams of earning a degree at South Carolina.


Removing barriers
 A little more than a decade ago, we launched the Gamecock Guarantee, the state’s first program of its kind for outstanding low-income, first-generation college students from South Carolina. The Gamecock Guarantee promises that each eligible student’s undergraduate tuition and technology fees will be covered for four years.

Forging connections
 Gamecock Guarantee students thrive because they also receive comprehensive academic and social support from award-winning programs like University 101. Students say the program’s family-like atmosphere helps create community and boosts their confidence to take on campus leadership roles, engage in research and study abroad, and pursue advanced and professional degrees.

Championing students
 With your help we can do even more to ensure that all students have access to South Carolina’s outstanding student experience. Please give to the Gamecock Guarantee and help students reach their full potential at South Carolina and beyond.
