This guide is designed to help transfer students make a successful transition to Limestone College.

Week One

ONLINE CLASSES -The online degree program at Limestone College makes it easy for those who aren’t able to attend traditional college programs in their area. Courses offered in the Internet program have the same content as those taught in traditional courses. Internet courses are designed for students to take classes at any time and any place, which makes it easier to fit pursuing an education into a busy life. EVENING CLASSES - With six convenient locations throughout South Carolina, we offer the flexibility for working adults to take classes in the evening. Classes are small and offer individualized learning. Our accelerated 8-week format allows students to complete a degree sooner than traditional 16-week programs.
