Posted on 20 March 2018 | 8:32 am

The Office of the Registrar will be closed on Friday, March 23, 2018 for a professional development event.  We will re-open at 8:30 on Monday, March 26, 2018.

We are pleased to announce a new Self-Service Banner (SSB) tool for students called Proxy Access Management that will provide current College of Charleston students with the ability to share certain academic and financial aid information with a parent or guardian online. As always, you will control access rights, but with Proxy Access Management you can modify access rights at any time, set valid date ranges on the access, and view a log of recent activity.

When setting up proxy access, you may select any or all of the following information items to share 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

The Office of the Registrar website contains additional information on Proxy Access Management including:

Collaborators on this project included the Office of the Registrar, Financial Aid, New Student Programs, Undergraduate Academic Services, Academic Experience, Academic Advising & Planning Center, and Information Technology.
