At Converse, opportunities don’t just happen. We create them. From our professors who put you in the middle of it all – research, real-world experience, and personal guidance – to our student life and career advisement teams – we surround you with what you need to be ready for both today and tomorrow.
Tomorrow’s game changers start here.
Our students are leaders, creative thinkers, and doers who are looking for more from their college experience.
Here’s what you need to know
Our tuition is lower than the cost of many other private Upstate SC institutions. You’ll complete your college career in a timely manner and without spending extra for additional years of school.
95% of Converse’s students receive some form of need-based and/or achievement-based financial aid. We are committed to ensuring that a high-quality, private education is within your reach. With lower tuition, your financial aid and scholarship dollars will stretch farther.
Converse believes in the value of our education and where it will take you. As part of the Converse Guarantee, we guarantee all undergraduate, full-time students will graduate from Converse in four years. If you don’t, the rest of your classes needed to complete your degree will be free.
We also guarantee you will be employed full-time or enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduation, or be eligible to return to Converse for a year tuition-free.

As a test-optional school, your ACT or SAT test scores are not required as part of the admissions application process. If you feel your scores are a good reflection of your ability you are more than welcome to submit them as part of your file. However, it is not an admissions requirement. For students who have not taken the TOEFL, Converse will also accept the Duolingo English test. Ask your Admissions Counselor for more details.

A Note to Prospective and Current Converse Students
Converse is committed to ensuring that new students who intend to enroll at our college are considered fairly in light of the educational interruption they have endured due to the COVID-19 pandemic. No student admitted to Converse will have their admission rescinded due to changes in grading policy or the inability to complete their coursework, so long as they still graduate. Students who apply to our institution are still subject to a review process that focuses on one’s ability to succeed in college but now recognizes that some situations are beyond their control. We look forward to supporting students and high schools through this challenging time, both now and with future graduating classes impacted by the pandemic.
