Here's Why:

  • We work with international students every day. We attract students from countries such as Austria, Bolivia, Germany, India, Republic of Korea, South Africa, United Kingdom, and more.

  • We’re in the heart of it all. USCB is situated between Charleston, S.C., and Savannah, Ga., two vibrant cities that are known for their art, culture, entertainment, history, and shopping, and both campuses are just a short distance from Hilton Head Island and the Atlantic Ocean.

  • You are supported from day one. At USCB, you are welcomed into a diverse and vibrant community where you will have an impact and help shape our culture.
