We are cleaning up our catalog. This course has not been taught for the last 11 years and there is no plans to teach it.
Lancaster is the only campus with these courses on their books. They are active courses. The classes are relatively small and the students are split between palmetto college students (degree completion program) and Lancaster students. For the most part courses at the 2 year campuses do correspond to courses in the Columbia course bulletin, but I am unsure of the ramifications for palmetto college of taking a course off the Columbia books.
You will need to follow up with Chancellor Susan Elkins and Dean Walter Collins.
Thank you for your thoroughness in checking on this matter.
