The Office of Admissions encourages all prospective students to seek advisement in creating an academic plan to facilitate admission and registration. Non-degree students may register for courses from one term to the next unless a student misses a fall or spring term. In that event, a student must reapply for admission. Failure to enroll for the summer does not interrupt the status of a non-degree student. Continuously enrolled students may register via MyCharleston according to hours earned at the College of Charleston.

 

This application is intended only for non-degree students—students enrolling in undergraduate courses but not seeking a bachelor's degree at this time. Review the descriptions below to determine eligibility.

 

For summer sessions only, contact 843.953.4831 or summer@cofc.edu.

 

Graduate credit students interested in enrolling in graduate-level courses should consult the Graduate School at 843.953.5614 or visit gradschool.cofc.edu.

 

Bachelor's degree-seeking students must use an undergraduate or graduate degree application. Apply online at cofc.edu.


 
Adult student

Eligibility

Adult non-degree student status applies to those ages 21+ with an interest in taking one or more courses for job advancement, personal satisfaction or to establish an academic record before applying for degree status. A high school diploma or GED is required. Students with a GED will take diagnostic placement tests in English and mathematics to determine appropriate academic courses. In most cases, official transcripts of previous college coursework are required and recommended for advising purposes and to demonstrate completion of course prerequisites. Students in non-degree status may transfer into a College of Charleston degree admission program after completing 15 - 30 hours of coursework with a minimum 2.6 (in-state resident) / 3.0 (out-of-state resident) GPA. At that time, official transcripts from all colleges and universities previously attended must be submitted if they are not currently on file with the Office of Admissions.
