The Online Program
The Online Program provides educational opportunities for working adults wishing to complete a baccalaureate degree. The Online Program offers an affordable, accelerated course of study for working adults and flexibility to allow students to complete their educational goals while meeting the demands of work and home. The Online Program has special reduced tuition, and Federal and state financial aid are available for qualified students. In addition, all classes are taught in 7½ -week terms. Students in the Online Program may take two courses during each term. New students may begin taking classes during any of the 6 terms.
The Online Program has Student Service Centers in Charleston, Columbia, Florence, Gaffney, and Greenville. These sites serve as local support for online students throughout the state of South Carolina.
Courses in the Online Program have the same content as those taught in our traditional on-campus face-to-face classes, except that the delivery of the content is via the Internet. The use of computers and other technology has allowed this delivery mode to proliferate and has enabled students to take courses wherever they are located or wherever they travel. Limestone has been providing Internet courses and degrees since 1996.
The Online Program offers majors in Business Administration, including concentrations in areas such as accounting, finance, management, marketing, and general business. Computer Science majors may concentrate in areas such as Management Information Systems, Programming, or System Security. Criminal Justice, Health Care Administration, Human Resources Management, Nursing (RN-BSN only), Psychology, Social Work, and Liberal Studies majors are offered as well. Students should note that not all majors are offered online. For a complete list of majors available go to https://www.limestone.edu/admissions/online and select “Choose Your Degree”.
The attendance policy for the Online Courses is listed under the heading of Class Attendance and should be included in course syllabi.

All Online students must apply and be accepted (please see Admission Procedures) for admission to Limestone. Transfer credits are evaluated on an individual basis. Normally, courses with appropriate grades from regionally accredited institutions that correspond to Limestone courses are accepted. In addition, credit earned through standard examinations, military courses, and other training programs is usually accepted as recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE), as appropriate to the Limestone curriculum.
