Palmetto College brings together the resources of the entire University of South Carolina system to combine the quality of a USC degree with the flexibility of online learning. Students who have earned at least 60 hours of college credit and meet degree grade point requirements can pursue a range of bachelor's degrees online.
We offer bachelor's degree completion programs through Palmetto College, and our graduate school offers online graduate degree programs in education, engineering, health information technology and public health. You'll find a variety of individual online courses as well.
Our online graduate degree programs are designed to bring you the same quality and rich academic experience that our on-campus students enjoy. This flexible, affordable format allows you to pursue advanced studies while you continue to devote time and energy to growth in your professional and personal life.
Many individual courses are also available online. Some require you to sign into a
class at a set time, others are accessible on demand. The Distributed Learning Course
Guide provides a detailed list of current courses.
Special Fee Notification: Students may be required to be proctored during online test completion. If students are unable to attend test proctoring sessions in person at the Distributed Learning office, additional fees may apply for online test proctoring if the course requires online testing.
