Continuing Education

MUST be at least 25 years of age to apply to the School of Continuing Education.

On Mondays at 6:00pm and Saturdays at 10:00am, the School of Continuing Education will hold regular Information Meetings (by appointments only) so that the general public is able to get information regarding our programs (location: 111 Doctor’s Circle, Columbia, SC).

There are many working adults that would like to complete the Bachelor’s Degree or simply enroll in courses that enhance their personal and professional development. However, due to hectic work schedules, family responsibilities, and church and community service commitments, many working adults just haven’t found the time to return to college and earn that Bachelor’s Degree or enroll in the courses as they have desired. Furthermore, today’s traditional undergraduate programs do not meet the needs of the sometimes overworked, oftentimes underpaid, and usually overwhelmed working adults through their daytime offerings and limited evening or weekend course scheduling. The Benedict College Evening and Weekend Programs and the Center for Life Long Learning are designed specifically to accommodate the culture of the working adult and nontraditional student.

It is definitely time for you to make it happen. Besides, it’s never too late to start or complete your college degree. I urge you to embrace what has become a motto for the School of Continuing Education, “It’s your time, make it happen!”
