At this time, the College plans to have classes resume on Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2018. All faculty and staff members will report to work as normally scheduled on Monday, Sept. 17.

The Office of the Registrar welcomes you to the Fall 2018 semester!  This email contains some helpful dates, deadlines, and information about the semester.

Academic Calendar:  Please be sure to take a few minutes to review the entire Fall 2018 Academic Calendar.   Here are some important highlights:

  • Drop/Add Deadline for Full Semester Classes: Monday August 27th
  • Senior Citizen Registration: Tuesday, August 28th and Wednesday, August 29th
  • Withdrawal Deadline for Express I Classes: Wednesday, September 19th
  • Drop/Add Deadline for Express II Classes: Friday, October 12th
  • Withdrawal Deadline for Full Semester Classes: Thursday, October 25th
  • Withdrawal Deadline for Express II Classes: Wednesday, November 14th

Academic Catalogs:  Looking for the undergraduate or graduate academic catalog (academic regulations, course descriptions, department/program information, etc.)?  Click Academic Catalog System. 

Full-time vs Part-time Status:  A minimum of 12.0 credit hours is considered full-time enrollment for undergraduate students. Be careful about dropping or withdrawing from courses which take your total enrollment hours below this minimum, as your financial aid and health insurance could possibly be affected. 

Holds:  Registration holds for a past due balance, an advising hold, parking or library fines, etc., will keep you from being able to drop, add or withdraw from classes in MyCharleston. You can check for any registration holds using the Academic Services tab in MyCharleston.  Look for the Registration Tools channel and click by clicking on the Registration Status link.  Only the department who placed the hold can remove it from your account.   If you have a hold and need to drop or withdraw from a class (by the appropriate deadline), please contact the Registrar’s Office for assistance BEFORE THE DEADLINE at! Requests after the deadline will not be processed.

One Stop Answers:  Visit our One Stop Answers for Common Student Requests web page for additional questions and answers.

Program of Study Resources:  Visit Program of Study Resources to find Major Roadmaps, Program of Study Planners, General Education Requirement information and more!

Have a great semester! Go Cougars!
