What is SCOPE?

As of Fall 2018, Bob Jones University became a member of The University Center of Greenville with the opening of its School for Continuing, Online and Professional Education (SCOPE) at the center.

Through its new school, BJU offers education programs designed for post-traditional students, who desire to complete a degree or participate in certificate programs that enhance employment skills. SCOPE students include those in high school looking to get a head start and students 25 or older looking to advance established careers. Online courses include degree completion programsprofessional master’s degrees and a graduate certificate program. Credit and non-credit certificate and professional development programs are also available.


“[SCOPE] underscores our commitment to support students from diverse educational backgrounds and with diverse educational requirements. We want to provide both flexibility and a broad range of options to help adult learners to acquire or finish degrees that will better position them in today’s workforce.”

Steve Pettit, BJU President
