The Office of Online Learning and Support (OLS) is committed to supporting online education and distance learning at USC Aiken for all instructors, faculty, staff, and students interested in utilizing technology for online learning. Our mission is to promote quality learning experiences for all by providing professional development opportunities in course design, promoting best practices in instructional design, and building a supportive campus network to meet the needs of our online faculty members and students.
The Office of Online Learning and Support also oversees the administrative support and academic advising for our undergraduate online degree programs. Our online degree completion programs, which we call Palmetto College at USC Aiken, are a flexible and convenient way to complete your degree if you have some previous college credit but never graduated. Our RN to BSN program is also a 100% online program that helps registered nurses obtain their BSN degrees. All of USC Aiken’s online programs are developed and taught by the same professors who teach statewide in the nationally renowned USC system. As an online student, you will have access to the university’s academic resources. Online students will also have access to academic advisors who are trained specifically on working with online students.
