I was an online student. The program provided an excellent opportunity for me to earn a degree while also working a fulltime swing shift job. The subjects were well covered for the most part. The 8-week time table for each course was ideal to achieve... Read More success. Allowed to take two courses per 8 weeks (a third course is allowed with written permission). As an online student you will be required to find an approved proctors to administer test, but a local library or tech school should provide the service. The degree has not really furthered my career, yet, but that is mainly because I have not tried. It was more of a goal I had set.
Limestone College was an excellent school to go to. I enjoyed my time there as an undergraduate student. The professors, for the most part, are very understanding. They realize that a lot of there student body, especially the online students, are older,... Read More and working other jobs. They did their best to prepare me for the career of social work. I will say that I do not think I was prepared for the masters program that I attended after Limestone, but I was prepared for licensure. This is important because the licensure test is tough, but I felt well prepared for it just by what I learned at Limestone. I had a few professors who were not very helpful, but for the most part, they are there for you and help you in any way they can. I was an entirely online student, but when I did have to go to an extended campus, they were accommodating and listened to my concerns. I think if you are looking for an online school in South Carolina, Limestone is a great school. If you are not a traditional student, they are very understanding of your time. The classes go by very quickly, but you learn a lot. Even though they are only 8 weeks per course, you get a good education, and it does not take as long to get through the program. I have attended a few schools over the past few years while gaining my degree and I would say that Limestone is one of the best for someone my age.
Limestone is a college that will help you reach your goal of obtaining a degree. They will help you decide as well as help you along the way. Even if you have been out of school for a while, Limestone is a good choice.
