Economic Impact

The University of South Carolina Upstate has a more than half a billion dollar annual impact on the state’s economy, according to a study by USC’s Darla Moore School of Business.

Being a university of choice in the rapidly growing Upstate region of South Carolina is a great responsibility. Our location provides us with powerful opportunities to not only help the region meet its educational needs, but to enhance the quality of life for all who call the Upstate home. We boast more than 30,000 alumni, many of whom live and work in the Palmetto State.
