Summer classes underway at USC

University of South Carolina
The University of South Carolina’s expansion to three full semesters is underway, with classes beginning this week.
Officials say student response, particularly among juniors, has been strong to On Your Time: Summer at Carolina, a new program of summer courses offered over eight sessions that range from one to 12 weeks. Because of its flexible design, course registration for the later summer sessions is still open, allowing students to progress toward their degree and working toward the goal of graduating in four years.
On Your Time: Summer at Carolina was designed to appeal to students’ need for greater flexibility and more course options, aid Mary Anne Fitzpatrick, associate vice president and vice provost for special academic initiatives.
In addition to lower-level courses, there are more than 40 online courses, a variety of practicums and internships and study abroad opportunities. Students can work on their degree or a minor, explore a new class, stay on track or repair their GPA to keep their state scholarship.
A list of the sessions and courses available are online at http://summer.sc.edu/.
Summer tuition is charged by the credit hour and based on a student’s classification (undergraduate, graduate etc.) and residency.
More information about costs is available at http://www.sc.edu/bursar/fees.shtml.
The summer expansion includes many of the services available to students during the fall and spring semesters.
