The Higher Education Opportunity for Greater Greenville
Greater Greenville is the largest metropolitan area in the State of South Carolina and does not have a public University within its borders. Although Clemson University and the University of South Carolina Upstate are within an hour’s commuting distance of downtown Greenville, neither is accessible to working professionals who cannot afford a two-hour round trip to take day or evening classes
The University Center of Greenville (UCG) was established to bring Bachelor’s Completion and Graduate (Master’s and Doctoral) Degrees from many of the State’s most respected and highest ranked Universities to the citizens and economic community of Greater Greenville.
