Some students who fail to get into the University of South Carolina's main campus in Columbia will get automatic acceptance letters into one of the system's two-year campuses starting next spring.

The State newspaper of Columbia reports Sunday that the college could begin in 2015 giving automatic acceptance letters to the college's four-year branch campuses in Aiken, Beaufort and Spartanburg.

Currently, the university sends students who are turned down for the main campus a brochure about the seven branch campuses around the state. But the students must apply separately.

USC's vice president for student affairs Dennis Pruitt says it's about providing students different pathways to get a higher education.

It could also boost enrollment at the smaller campuses, which can accommodate more students.
