Although voluntary, submission of your U.S. Social
Security number (SSN) is strongly encouraged. In providing a SSN, we create a
unique profile to verify information provided as well as process enrollment forms and supporting credentials submitted. In compliance
with federal and state regulations, your SSN is required to enroll at the
College of Charleston. If you do not have a U.S. SSN or prefer not to provide it at this time, please enter all zeroes
(000000000) in this field.
Residency Information for Tuition Purposes
(Information requested for tuition purposes only. If no or
uncertain, contact the Legal Residency Office at 843.953.7312 or legalresidency.cofc.edu).
Citizenship and Visa Information
South Carolina Law requires that you present proof of
citizenship or legal presence in the U.S. prior to registering for classes at
the College of Charleston. The College will use legally authorized federal or
state databases to verify student citizenship before asking students to submit
proof of citizenship. If your status cannot be verified through one of these
databases, then during new student orientation and/or before you register for
classes, you will need to provide one of the approved verification documents. Click here for more information.
