The Office of the Registrar is currently processing course changes from Academic Departments in response to Fall 2020 Covid-19 planning.  You may notice changes in your course schedule or in the instruction modality for some of your courses.   As we get closer to the start of classes on August 25th, check your schedule regularly. Students have the ability to make changes to their schedule through the end of the drop/add period. If you have questions, check with your academic advisor.

Thank you for your patience as we all work together to navigate the plans for a safe Fall semester!  Additional information on Covid-19 planning can be found on

This is a very popular question!  Thanks for asking it!  The Office of the Registrar cannot override or register students into courses.  Course enrollment is maintained by the academic departments.  Only a Department within a School can grant capacity or pre-requisite overrides.  Keep in mind, not all Departments grant overrides.  Each Department sets their own criteria for review and approval of overrides.

Make sure you take some time to review your registration status prior to this date.  Registration status can be found on the Registration Tools channel on the Academic Services tab of MyCharleston.  If you have a registration hold on your account, you will not be able to register for courses until this hold is cleared by the department who placed the hold.  For more information on registration holds, please visit Registration Holds and Required Verifications.
