USC Aiken Palmetto College Business Degree Completion Program

The Palmetto College is a collaborative online upper-level degree completion program which utilizes the resources of the USC system’s four regional campuses (Lancaster, Salkehatchie, Sumter and Union) and four senior campuses (Aiken, Beaufort, Columbia and Upstate). Generally speaking, students who have completed a minimum of 60 hours of transferable undergraduate general education courses will be eligible to apply for admission.  Students admitted as a Palmetto College major at one USC senior campus may not be concurrently enrolled in another degree program at the same or another USC senior campus.

USC Aiken offers South Carolina residents an AACSB-accredited online degree completion program in Business Administration (Management concentration only) through the Palmetto College collaborative program.  Students who have been admitted to the USC Aiken Palmetto College program will be able to complete all upper level requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) degree online.  These courses will typically be offered in an 8-week accelerated format. The curriculum and degree requirements for the Palmetto College business major are exactly the same as those prescribed for the full four-year BSBA degree program offered by USC Aiken. Accordingly, Palmetto College business majors must fulfill all USC Aiken general education and major requirements listed in the University's bulletin.  Students who successfully complete the Palmetto College Business Degree Completion Program will receive the AACSB-accredited BSBA degree from USC Aiken.
