...A pioneer in providing educational opportunities for working adults...

Limestone College was established in 1845 by Dr. Thomas Curtis and his son, Dr. William Curtis, distinguished scholars born and educated in England. Limestone was the first women’s college in South Carolina and one of the first in the United States. In the late 1960s, Limestone became fully coeducational. Limestone was a pioneer in providing educational opportunities for working adults wishing to complete a baccalaureate degree. The Block Program, established in 1976, brought Limestone classes to numerous locations throughout South Carolina. In 1997, Limestone established the Virtual Campus Program, providing students around the world the opportunity to complete their degrees through classes offered via the Internet. In 2005, the Block and the Virtual Campus programs merged as the Limestone College Extended Campus.

Today, Limestone College enrolls approximately 850 traditional Day Students and 2,650 Extended Campus students. Limestone’s total enrollment is approximately 3,500. Of Limestone’s 14,000 living alumni, 56% are graduates of the Extended Campus Program. Limestone College’s main campus is in Gaffney, South Carolina, in the Piedmont region of the state. Ten buildings on the campus are included on the National Register of Historic Places. Limestone College is a regionally-accredited, independent, coeducational four-year liberal arts institution chartered by the State of South Carolina. Its programs lead to the Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Social Work, or Master of Business Administration degree.

In 2012, the online graduate program was established offering graduate students the opportunity to earn a Master’s degree in Business Administration. Limestone College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate, baccalaureate, and masters degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Limestone College. Limestone is also accredited by the Council on Social Work Education and meets the certification standards required by the South Carolina State Department of Education for teacher certification.

Over 56% of alumni are Extended Campus graduates. Most of our students enjoy the small evening classes because they are able to receive the one-on-one attention they deserve. The average evening class size is about 16 students. The small classes offer more opportunities for class participation and individual attention. The Extended Campus Evening Classroom program divides the calendar year into six sessions, each lasting eight weeks. One or two courses are completed in eight weeks using a hybrid model, allowing students to complete a degree in four years for a bachelor’s degree or two years for an associate’s degree. Students may complete their degrees sooner, depending on transfer credit. Classes usually meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings each week face-to-face and once a week online. Each evening class session meets for an hour and a half, for a total of 16 sessions. At some sites, courses are also offered Monday and Wednesday nights.

The Extended Campus Internet courses are eight weeks long. The Internet courses are designed for an adult to earn a degree at his/her own pace at home. There are six terms a year. For convenience, two courses can be taken at the same time online. Courses can be taken via the Internet and the classroom simultaneously. In online courses, there are no specific times that the student must be online, but normally the professor will have specific “office hours� available for discussion with students. The student will be required to take online exams with a proctor who is approved by the College.

The courses in the Internet program have the same content as the traditional classroom courses. 7 COL06236_LimestoneCX6.indd 7

Computer, information, and physical security are becoming more important at an exponential rate since the tragedies of September 11, 2001. Because of these events and new threats, the necessity for computer and information systems security has moved to the forefront. Web sites are being defaced, denial-of-service attacks increased, and credit card information being stolen; there is an increased sophistication of hacking tools available to the public, and increased damage is being caused to computer and information systems by today’s viruses and worms. For these reasons, private and public government agencies and institutions are demanding information technology workers educated and trained in the computer and information systems security field. This concentration will prepare students for the rigors of such demands.
