  • Courses offered at BMW as part of the Advanced Manufacturing Management program.
  • "Dual enrollment" courses offered at local high schools.

Carolina Card (USC Upstate Student ID)

 It is necessary for you to acquire a USC Upstate username and password and a Carolina Card in order to access all the library resources. 

 A USC Upstate username and password is required for access to electronic databases and on campus network access.  

Books can be requested for "pick up anywhere" through PASCAL Delivers whether they are USC Upstate books or books belonging to other PASCAL member institutions. A Carolina Card ID is required for pickup of all Library Materials.

The Carolina Card has a barcode that is required for use of PASCAL Delivers and USC Upstate Interlibrary Loan materials.  Renewal of all materials requires the barcode number from your Carolina Card.  Carolina Cards are made at the University Department of Public Safety on the USC Upstate Campus and the Upstate administrative offices at UCG (with a 3 to 4 day wait for an active card).
