“These are extraordinary times, and we are hopeful that this step will provide clarity to students as they apply to benefit from a nationally ranked USC Aiken education,” Daniel Robb, associate vice chancellor for enrollment management, said in a statement.

Prospective students are encouraged to apply early to receive the most immediate admission and scholarship consideration.
