Through one of our USC Palmetto College campuses (USC Lancaster, USC Salkehatchie, USC Sumter, USC Union, Fort Jackson), you can complete your Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree completely online. Our Associate Degree Graduates have endless opportunities, including continuation into our online Bachelor's Degree Completion Programs.
Below are a few of the many reasons students start their educational journey with our Associate Degree:
- Flexible – You can complete your degree 100% online or in a blended format through one of our campuses.
- Affordable – Our tuition is the lowest in the USC System.
- Reputable – Your degree from the University of South Carolina is nationally recognized and offered by world-class faculty. Your diploma will be identical to those earned by students on campus.
- Potential – With your associate degree, your options for employment, higher earnings, and further education immediately expand. In fact, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, workers who have an associate degree earn about $8,000 more per year than those with only a high school diploma.
