Prospective Lancers

In a time when an affordable education is increasingly out of reach for many, USC Lancaster prides itself on its cost-effective education.  USC Lancaster and Palmetto College offer outstanding educational opportunities at some of the most affordable rates in South Carolina. Whether on the Lancaster campus, at the Indian Land location or online, the tuition rates are reasonable for both South Carolina and out-of-state residents. While some institutions raise tuition and fees annually, tuition has remained the same at USC Lancaster for the past two years.  Here, you stay closer while your money goes further.
