Accelerated Study Plan

Accelerated Study Plans are curricular plans that allow you to complete a traditional degree in less time. 


After initial enrollment, you may choose to enter into an accelerated study plan agreement with the University of South Carolina.  If you choose to pursue a degree on an accelerated schedule, you will be assigned an adviser within your college or school in your first semester who will make sure you take full advantage of fall, spring, and summer course offerings in order to graduate in an accelerated time frame.

Take advantage of online course offerings, robust options for summer study, tailored advising, and accelerated timelines toward graduation. Graduating early translates into reduced costs, entering the job market sooner or moving on to graduate school earlier, if desired.

Please contact the Office of On Your Time Initiatives at 803-777-9850 for more information.
