Q: When will this change take place?

A: The change will take place at the start of Fall Semester 2017. If you are currently enrolled as an iIT student in HRSM and you are graduating in spring 2017 or summer 2017, this move will not affect you at all. You will graduate with HRSM before the change occurs. Student records for iIT undergraduate and graduate students who are scheduled to graduate after summer 2017 will officially be transferred to the College of Engineering and Computing effective August 15, 2017. 

Q: Will this change affect which classes I need to complete my degree?

A: No. If you began your iIT degree with the College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management you can complete the course catalog you are already started on. You will remain under the program requirements specified in the Bulletin for the year you were admitted, unless you choose to change to the newer Bulletin.

Q: What college will I graduate from?

A: If you are an iIT student graduating by Summer 2017 you will graduate from the College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management. Any iIT students graduating after Summer 2017 will graduate from the College of Engineering and Computing.

Q: Will my bill change?

A: Billing for spring and summer 2017 tuition and fees will continue to reflect the College of HRSM.  Beginning with the Fall 2017 semester, billing will reflect the College of Engineering and Computing tuition and fees. While your tuition price will not be affected by the move, some academic departments and classes require additional fees which can vary. CEC’s undergraduate program fees are higher than HRSM’s. However, the change will not affect graduate student fees.  Please visit https://sc.edu/bursar/schedule_main.shtml for a complete listing of fees by department.
