The University of South Carolina Beaufort is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in the nation. Its lineage dates back to the original 1795 charter of Beaufort College. By official act two centuries ago, the South Carolina Legislature authorized the college to confer degrees in the liberal arts or sciences, degrees that were equivalent to those conferred by other colleges in Europe and elsewhere in America. The onset of hostilities in the Civil War forced the college to close in 1861.
