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 https://cofc.edu/back-on-the-bricks/

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.

Registration Reminder
This is a reminder that course registration will be open to the campus at 8:00 am (EST) on Saturday, August 8, 2020.  Helpful information regarding the registration process can be found on the Help & Training tab in MyCharleston on the Office of the Registrar Student Resources channel.
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.
If You Have Already Applied to Graduate
Students who have already applied to graduate will not be eligible to register for courses or change registration for previously registered courses until they submit a Graduation Update form.  If you need to extend your expected graduation term, please visit the Graduate Update webpage for more information.
If You are an Incoming Student Who Has Not Attended Your Orientation Session Yet
Incoming students who have not yet completed their Orientation session will register for courses on their assigned date.  Students who have questions regarding Orientation should contact orientat@cofc.edu.

Registration is currently closed due to New Student Orientation. All students will be able to make adjustments to their fall schedule from 8:00 am (EST) August 8, 2020 through August 31, 2020 or the end of the drop/add period. Students who need assistance earlier should consult with the department chair in their major or contact the department offering the course.

It is important to know the difference between Online and In-Person classes for Fall 2020!  Here are some helpful definitions:

ONLINE (ASYNCHRONOUS):  Courses taught online but can be accessed at a student’s leisure. There is no specific class meeting time but there are due dates for assignments.

ONLINE (SYNCHRONOUS):  Courses taught exclusively online at the same time(s) and day(s) each week. Showing up to class will be via an online platform from a location of the student’s choosing

IN-PERSON (HYBRID):  Sometimes students will attend class at the listed location/time AND there will be an online component. Courses taught “in-person” will vary depending on the professor or department. Check the course syllabus for specific details.
