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.
Members of a faculty unit covering a wide array of disciplines teach courses in all the unit’s programs.
Extended University also manages two baccalaureate degrees for Palmetto College: the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies (BLS) and the Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Leadership (BOL) for students on regional campuses as well as online. Extending USC’s undergraduate offerings beyond the traditional is the goal this unit enthusiastically embraces.
