All course registrations default to credit, which means the course is being taken for a grade.

Students may audit a course after obtaining permission of the instructor on the Permission to Audit Form, which is available on the Registrar’s Office website.  Students must first register for a course and then submit the Permission to Audit Form to the Registrar’s Office no later than the last day of drop/add for the term in order to finalize their audit.  A student may only make a change to course grading status (graded or audit) prior to the last day of drop/add for the term.  A course audit will be recorded on a student’s transcript with the Status Indicator AU. No credit or quality points are earned.

Not all courses offered by the College may be audited.  Departments and Programs may limit the number of audits per course section and may also designate courses that do not accept any auditors.  Students should consult with the appropriate Department or Program prior to seeking permission to audit a course.  Faculty determine the course requirements for auditing students (e.g. attendance, participation, submission of assignments, exams, etc.).

Current College of Charleston students have the ability to electronically share certain academic and financial aid information with a parent or guardian.

The Proxy Access Management service in Self-Service Banner provides students with a way to designate proxy access to trusted users to view selected student information. By setting up proxy access the student is giving consent for specified individuals to view academic information from their student record online. The student is able to modify the access rights and valid date ranges as well as view a log of the most recent activity.  Students may select any or all of the following information items with a proxy:

  • Financial Aid information (Aid Status, Academic Progress, Award History)
  • Personal Information (Addresses, E-mail, Emergency Contacts)
  • Registration Information (Schedule)
  • Student Records Information (Midterm Grades, Final Grades, Unofficial Transcript, Holds)

NOTE: Proxy access does not authorize College of Charleston personnel to communicate with authorized proxies. To authorize this type of communication, students must complete a FERPA Consent Form. For more information on FERPA, please visit our FERPA Information web page.
