How to Apply

If you're considering one of our online bachelor degree completion programs, we recommend you talk to one of our representatives before applying. It can sometimes be tough to tell if credits from another school will transfer, and we can help you sort out what credits you still need to get before applying.

Before you apply...

  • Contact a Palmetto College representative.
  • Submit your unofficial transcripts. 
  • Your advisor will personally review the transcripts, along with the requirements for your desired program, and let you know if there are any general education requirements you need to complete.

This method ensures that you don't waste an application fee if you don't have the prerequisites to start the program!


Once you've confirmed that you're ready to apply for the program, follow the application instructions for your program and send an official copy of your transcript to the Office of Admissions at the school that issues your degree. (All online degrees are issued by one of our four-year USC campuses: USC Columbia, USC Aiken, USC Upstate, or USC Beaufort.)

You'll also need to pay a $40-$65 application fee, depending on which degree program you're applying for. 

If you are admitted to Palmetto College, you'll be assigned a Program Advisor who will be in touch with you about how to set up your student email and blackboard account.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
