General Information

The Sand Shark Scholars Program is a one-year residential program offered jointly by the University of South Carolina Beaufort and the University of South Carolina Salkehatchie. Designed for a select group of freshmen, the Sand Shark Scholars Program is an academic transfer program available by invitation only. 

The Sand Shark Scholars Program includes targeted academic advising, student support services, and a student life component — all of which are designed to help students succeed in meeting academic requirements for transferring to USC Beaufort.  The successful collaboration between USC Beaufort and USC Salkehatchie allows students to make progress in their intended major during their freshman year while preparing to enroll at USC Beaufort beginning their sophomore year.
