Welcome from Dr. Sally Boyd
The Extended University unit focuses on making USC’s undergraduate course offerings and related services more accessible to students who vary in some way from the traditional profile.
Older students, either prospective or enrolled, are counseled and advised through Adult Student Services.
The Adult Student Advancement Program (ASAP) offers a second-chance opportunity to those whose past college experiences have not been successful. Adult Student Services also advises students who are taking USC undergraduate courses but aren’t working on USC degrees.
The Fort Jackson Program serves military students as well as civilian students who find its location or schedule convenient.
Back to Carolina: Here’s your chance to finish what you started. Back to Carolina is a convenient way to complete your USC degree without leaving your family, job or community. Back to Carolina is a manageable degree completion program with online courses and lots of support. Our advisors will help you with admissions, course selection and financial aid.
Members of a faculty unit covering a wide array of disciplines teach courses in all the unit’s programs.
Extended University also manages baccalaureate degrees for special populations: the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies (BLS) and the Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Leadership (BOL) for students on regional campuses. Extending USC’s undergraduate offerings beyond the traditional is the goal this unit enthusiastically embraces.
