Hello Class of 2014! IT put together some useful information that spells out what alumni access entails for IT systems and applications at the College of Charleston.

Here’s the 411:

  • Alumni will have access to Cmail for the next 10 years, possibly longer. This is tied to the length of the College’s contract with Google, which will be revisited in 2020.
  • All student access to Spring 2014 OAKS classes will end on May 21, 2014. Please plan accordingly.
  • Alumni will continue to have access to parts of MyCharleston such as View/Update Personal Information, View/Request Transcripts, CofC News widget, etc.
  • Graduating seniors and alumni have access to MyCofC, the alumni online community. There are a number of benefits to MyCofC that include:
