A:  Upper Division courses are taught by USC Columbia College of Nursing professors via various methodologies.  The most common form of course delivery is online, via Adobe Connect.    Students must be present and online for these classes at a designated day and time.  Students sign in to class via a specified website and communicate with professors via a real-time, online method.  Several Upper Division courses are solely online, where students complete coursework at their own pace, yet within specific time frames designated by the professor.  Live labs accompany several of the Upper Division courses (such as Assessment), where students have an opportunity to practice skills and apply information learned in class.  Tests for Adobe Connect classes are completed on the student’s campus of choice (Allendale or Walterboro) with a proctor present.
