Course registration  for fall 2021 courses during June, July, and August has limited availability due to New Student Orientation sessions.  After June 13, 2021, registration availability is as follows:

  • June 30th – July 7th
  • July 24 – Drop/Add deadline (August 26th for Express I and August 30th for full semester courses)

The 2021-2022 undergraduate and graduate catalogs are now live at !

The Office of the Registrar and Transfer Resource Center will be closed on Monday, May 31, 2021 in observance of Memorial Day.

The College of Charleston has authorized Credentials Solutions/Parchment to provide online transcript ordering, printing, and delivery.  Order online via MyCharleston or the Credentials Solutions/Parchment website.   More information can be found on our website:

Current and former students should use the Credentials Solutions/Parchment ordering service available through MyCharleston to authenticate and avoid completing the Signature Authorization Form.

  • Make sure your browser is not blocking pop-ups.
  • Login to MyCharleston
  • Select either the Academic Services or the Alumni tab
  • Look for the Transcripts channel
  • Click the Official Academic Transcript Request link; this will open the Credentials Solutions/Parchment site in a new window.

Alumni who do not have a current MyCharleston account may order directly with Credentials Solutions/Parchment.

Students who may not have access to a major credit card or the Internet should contact the Registrar’s Office.


In order to accommodate parking on campus for the afternoon commencement ceremony on Friday, May 7th,  the RO and TRC will close at noon on Friday, May 7, 2021.

Graduation is the official awarding of degrees. Participation in a commencement ceremony does not equal graduation. Students must meet all graduation requirements before a degree is conferred.  Commencement is an end-of-fall or -spring celebration for students projected to successfully complete all of their graduation requirements by the end of that fall, spring or summer semester.  The official date the Office of the Registrar awards degrees can be found on the academic calendar.
