South Carolina is home to a sizable collection of top-tier colleges. Anderson University, Clemson University, Erskine College, Presbyterian College, University of South Carolina, and Winthrop University are just a few. These schools, along with 69 other colleges in the state, have Title IV status. This means, they have met five strict requirements established by the U.S. Department of Education.

Title IV schools (1) have accreditation recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, (2) have been in business for at least 2 years, (3) have signed a participation agreement with the Department, (4) grant an associate's degree or higher, and (5) offer a program of at least 300 clock hours in length. Title IV status also means South Carolina’s finest institutions are eligible for federal financial aid programs, making them more accessible to students with financial need.
