Membership in University Center of Greenville, which provides degrees from regionally accredited universities in fields aligned with Upstate South Carolina’s job market, is “part of Bob Jones University’s efforts to serve online and nontraditional students,” according to a news release. Anderson University, Clemson University, Converse College, Furman University, Greenville Technical College, the University of South Carolina and USC Upstate are all part of University Center Greenville.
The School for Continuing, Online and Professional Education, or SCOPE, offers programs for nontraditional students 25 or older who desire to complete a degree or participate in certificate programs that enhance employment skills, the release said. In addition to dual enrollment classes and online master’s degree programs, Bob Jones University’s recently launched RN to Bachelor of Science in Nursing program will be available through SCOPE. The university plans to develop both credit and non-credit certificate programs in areas such as healthcare, technology, project management and education as well as degree completion programs, according to the release.
