Commitment to Academic Excellence

cares-logo.jpg The University of South Carolina Athletics Department extends a caring and committed effort toward helping our students’ intellectual, cultural, physical and social development. To support this commitment, the Department of Athletics has created an academic support program to assist student-athletes with their transition from high school to college. The primary objective of the Carolina Academic Resources and Enrichment Services (C.A.R.E.S.) program is to assist student-athletes in their efforts to complete their degree requirements and to develop the skills necessary to be productive members of society.

The C.A.R.E.S. program is conveniently housed in the Academic Enrichment Center in the Roost, adjacent to Sarge Frye Field. The staff of the Academic Enrichment Center provides student-athletes with accurate and timely information about both University of South Carolina requirements and procedures and NCAA rules and regulations. The academic advisors within the C.A.R.E.S. program assist the student-athletes’ pursuit of undergraduate degrees through the development and evaluation of their academic plans based on the student-athletes’ individual educational and career objectives. The C.A.R.E.S. staff encourages student-athletes to take advantage of and participate in all of the educational opportunities of the University of South Carolina.
