Academic Bulletin

The Academic Bulletins are the official documents of record concerning USC academic programs and regulations.

The Academic Bulletin is the official document of record concerning academic programs and regulations. Each calendar year has a unique bulletin and there are different bulletins based on your particular course of study. The university’s senior and regional campuses also have their own Academic Bulletins.

Search current bulletins for key information about programs available at the colleges and schools, course descriptions and much more. Access previous bulletins within the bulletin archive.

Course Descriptions

Each course at the university is described in detail in the Academic Bulletin, which is the official record of academic programs at the University of South Carolina.

Undergraduate course descriptions and the graduate course descriptions are located in their respective bulletins and are listed by the course number and title. Each course description includes credit hour value, prerequisites and related notes. You can filter the list by prefix, course code, type or keyword. Choose the bulletin that fits your degree plan and explore your options.

Note that with so many different classes held in each of the university’s colleges and schools, course descriptions are updated throughout the academic year. So course descriptions are subject to change.

Degrees Offered
