FDTC Rebrands the Online College

SC Virtual College of FDTC

One of Florence-Darlington Technical College’s (FDTC) most popular academic programs has been rebranded. FDTC’s Online College is now called the South Carolina Virtual College of FDTC.

FDTC was the first college in the state to offer complete academic programs on the Internet. In addition, the South Carolina Virtual College of FDTC offers over 100 courses, ranging from public speaking to accounting and everything in-between. Over the last year, there have been many student-focus initiatives implemented to help students succeed in the online education environment. To name a few, some of these initiatives include online tutoring support, online library services and an online bookstore. The new South Carolina Virtual College of FDTC has even a changed how online classes look and feel with a weekly format.

“Student success in online classes is one of my top priorities,” said director of the South Carolina Virtual College of FDTC, Derk Riechers. “It is vital that today’s online student has all campus related services available in the online environment. For instance, having online tutoring support for all students 24/7 helps students directly succeed in their classes. I am very excited about the future of online education at FDTC, as there are many exciting initiatives on the horizon to further support success in the online classroom.”

The South Carolina Virtual College of FDTC is a convenient educational option for students who are unable to attend classes on a daily basis or for students who are trying to make up ground by getting ahead before the next semester. Many students also take the courses because they feel more comfortable completing their work from home, rather than in a classroom full of students.

If you think the South Carolina Virtual College of FDTC is a better fit for your busy schedule, be sure to stop by Room 5214 in the 5000 Building on the main campus and talk with Derk Riechers or Lamar Younginer. Below is their contact information.
