Description

Whether you’re a high school student just embarking on your bachelor’s studies or a working adult, Limestone College in Gaffney, South Carolina, has a program for you. At Limestone all students also get the experience of a Christian-oriented environment and an idyllic, picturesque campus.

Limestone divides its degree offerings into two categories: traditional day programs for full-time students who have recently graduated from high school, and evening programs for adults who have been out of high school for several years.

Academics for both day and evening students are also divided into two categories: liberal arts and professional fields of study.

Scholarship amounts vary and are based on grade point average and SAT or ACT scores.

Limestone college has been an excellent experience for me. I work in the daytime and they make it so you can go get your degree at night. The professors also are available for tutoring if you are having trouble. I LOVE LIMESTONE COLLEGE!!!
