The University of South Carolina Upstate is pleased to announce it is offering more than 360 courses online this summer, empowering students to continue their educational pursuits despite the unprecedented circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic.

USC Upstate’s summer course schedule, which is the largest in the university’s history, includes more than 50 classes never before offered by the university during the summer term.

“Our successful transition to virtual instruction during these historic times is a testament to the dedication and resilience of our faculty and students,” said Derham Cole, interim chancellor at USC Upstate. “We are proud to be ‘Up and running’ this summer and delighted to offer a record number of classes to meet the needs of students across the state.”

Registration is now open for current USC Upstate students and students seeking to earn credits toward a degree at an institution other than USC Upstate. Students may take two courses in each session of summer school. Those sessions include Summer A, May 6-29; Summer B, June 1-June 30; and Summer C, July 6-Aug. 4. The last day to register for classes is May 7 for Summer A, June 3 for Summer B and July 7 for Summer C.  

Any hours completed in summer school will count toward hours earned for scholarships and for satisfactory academic progress. Financial aid is available to USC Upstate students. Visiting students will need to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the current school year.

“USC Upstate was one of the first universities to announce that its summer school would be going completely virtual,” said USC Upstate Provost Clif Flynn. “It’s a privilege to offer a high-quality online learning experience from world-class faculty not only for our own students but also those from other universities who want to keep on learning at USC Upstate.”
