|Frequently Asked Questions|
Yes! Limestone College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate, baccalaureate, and masters degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033 - 4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Limestone College. Normal inquiries about the institution, such as admission requirements, financial aid, and educational programs should be addressed directly to Limestone College. When selecting any program, you should make sure that the program is accredited by a regional accrediting body.
The current program is designed to take just 1 year and 10 months to complete.
The Limestone graduate program is unique in several ways. First, the program has been designed to take the best aspects of a traditional college MBA program as well as those from online programs. The Limestone program includes three weekend seminars, which are held on the main campus in Gaffney, South Carolina. These seminars give you a great chance to meet fellow students, network with professors, and see the campus. We believe that meeting fellow students and professors face-to-face will add immeasurably to each student's learning over course of the program. Secondly, Limestone College is dedicated to providing outstanding instruction for each class. While many online colleges and universities teach online courses with part-time adjuncts, Limestone is committed to using full-time faculty with doctoral degrees to teach in the graduate program whether you are taking an online class or attending one of the residencies.
The program is setup for you to take 1 class during each 8 week period. We understand that because of unforeseen events, there may be times when you may be unable to take a class and the program is flexible enough to accommodate that.
In general, students can transfer up to 6 credit hours (with a grade of B or better) from another accredited graduate program; however, all transfer credits must be specifically approved by Limestone College.

Yes. Because most of the instruction will be given in an online environment, access to the Internet is needed as well as a word processing program (Microsoft Word is preferred). There will be some courses given using podcasts, which will give you the opportunity to download lectures and watch them when you are not online using your PC or video iPod.
Limestone has cohorts starting throughout the year. Once your application is approved, you will be given an opportunity to select when you start. The program has been built for you - on your schedule, so you can start now or in a number of months. Typically, we offer start times in March, July, and October every year.
Most students take either the GMAT / GRE for admission into the MBA program; however, it can be waived for those with five years or more management experience.
If the applicant takes the GRE, the MBA Admissions Commitee will use the GRE Score Conversion Tool (http://www.ets.org/gre/institutions/about/mba/comparison_tool/ ) to convert the students' GRE Sscore into a GMAT Equivalency score.
All courses will be asynchronous, therefore there is no need to log on to the internet at any specific time. The courses are flexible allowing you to log on and complete the coursework at your convenience.
You don’t have to have a business degree to apply or be accepted into the program. Based on your undergraduate coursework, there may be a couple of courses that you may be required to take in order to give you a good background in business prior to starting your graduate coursework. These courses will be identified to you as part of the admissions process.
