Palmetto College

Tuition and Financial Aid

Palmetto College online degrees offer a USC education at an affordable price. Tuition is less expensive than attending school in-person, especially when you factor in housing and relocation expenses associated with a traditional program.


Tuition rates are updated annually through the Bursar’s Office.

Financial Aid

Most students are eligible for some type of financial aid. The first step to applying for financial aid is to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Federal, state, USC and privately funded scholarship programs all require this form.

School Codes for FAFSA

While the Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies is an online program, the degree itself is granted by our main USC campus in Columbia. The USC Union Campus provides ancillary support for processing student financial aid requests. Therefore, please use the USC Union school code when you apply for the FAFSA.

The school code for USC Union is 004927.

If you are a current Palmetto College campus student at Lancaster, Salkehatchie, or Sumter, you can use the school code for that campus instead.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
