A. Application: Each applicant must submit a completed application, with the appropriate nonrefundable application fee, to the Graduate School. Use the Apply Now button below to access the online application system. Paper applications are only available upon request in the Graduate School office.  Non-degree seeking graduate application.
B. Residency Form (included in the online application): All applicants who claim South Carolina residency for tuition and fee purposes are required to complete a Residency Form (pdf - 212 KB). Additional information may be requested if further clarification is needed.
C. Official Transcripts (pdf - 102 KB): Applicants must submit official transcripts (sent directly to the Graduate School from the issuing institution) indicating completion of a baccalaureate degree*, or a copy of a South Carolina Class III Teaching Certificate or its equivalent from another state. *Degrees or coursework completed at an institution that does not hold accreditation from the commission on colleges of a regional accreditation agency will be evaluated on an individual basis. Admission as a graduate non-degree student in no way guarantees subsequent admission into a graduate degree program. Students classified as graduate non-degree who later elect to pursue a degree program must have their credentials evaluated for admission to the program.  Graduate non-degree students who are seeking admission to a graduate degree program may take no more than 12 semester hours of graduate credit at Winthrop prior to being admitted to a graduate degree program. Should the student subsequently be admitted to a degree program, a maximum of 12 semester hours of graduate non-degree credit may be applied toward the degree.
