Class Schedule Updates

Posted: 8:19 AM 9/14/2022
As you likely know, we had a number of errors in our printed catalog. We are also operating in a new working environment with USCA. Those two elements have resulted in inconsistencies in our published class schedule information and in more wait-lists than we want. We apologize for those. The Center and the university are dedicated to eliminating these issues for next semester. For now, we believe you will find consistent information about the class schedule for the fall semester, regardless of where that information is published. Check anywhere in this block to go to the Catalog page for up-to-date schedules and an errata for the printed catalog. Thank you for your patience.

Announcement of Merger

On July 23, 2021, a meeting was held in Room 122 of the B&E Building on the campus of USC Aiken to publicly announce the merger of the Academy of Lifelong Learning and the McGrath Computer Learning Center to form the Center for Lifelong Learning. About 30 volunteers, USC Aiken staff, and the media attended.

Remarks were made by Paul Crook, Executive Director of the Etherredge Center and External Programs, Continuing Education, and Conferences; Dr. Daniel Heimmermann, Chancellor of USC Aiken; Dr. Daren Timmons, Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs; Wayne Rickman, Chairperson of McGrath Computer Learning Center, Inc.; Harriet Haynes, President of the Academy for Lifelong Learning; and Karen Edgington, former Director of External Programs, Continuing Education, and Conferences, whose leadership led to the merger of the two organizations long associated with USC Aiken Continuing Education.

The remarks were followed by formally signing the merger agreement. The signers are shown in the picture below.
