Archives For School Closures

On Sunday, March 15, in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster ordered the closure of the state’s k-12 schools and public universities for the next two weeks.  For public universities, the governor’s order means the College of Charleston’s main campus and satellite campuses are closed, at least until April 3. The College will suspend its in-person classes and move to online/distance learning from March 23 until at least April 3 (which extends the previously announced e-learning schedule by one week). 

The Office of the Registrar and the Transfer Resource Center will be operating remotely during this time period.  As a result, some services may be limited or unavailable.  Please contact us via email using your college-issued email account (not personal account):

RO:  registrar@cofc.edu

TRC:  transfercenter@cofc.edu

Many questions can be answered on our websites:  registrar.cofc.edu  or transfer.cofc.edu.

We appreciate your patience as we all navigate COVID-19 over the next few weeks.  We wish you all good health!
