Since 2008, the Gamecock Guarantee has offered an affordable, high quality education to academically talented first-generation students from low-income South Carolina families.

The Gamecock Guarantee promises that each eligible student’s undergraduate tuition and technology fee will be covered for four years, as long as the student continues to meet the program’s criteria.

And while all university students have access to programs and services that help bolster their academic achievement, students who qualify will benefit from a coordinated network of offerings that can further enrich their undergraduate experiences.
