Do you know what Mandatory Advising is at CofC?
All new first year students are required to attend academic advising during their first and second semesters at the College of Charleston. If a student's declared major department requires advising, then the student must meet with his or her faculty advisor. If the student is undeclared or his or her declared major department does not require academic advising, then the student must meet with the assigned academic advisor in the AAPC. (Note: HONORS students and ATHLETES are advised in those departments, not the AAPC.) New transfer students must meet with the assigned advisor in the AAPC only if they have not yet declared an academic major.
A Mandatory Advising hold from the Academic Advising and Planning Center (AAPC) prevents students from registering for classes until they meet with their assigned academic advisors in the AAPC. Please note that AAPC advisors cannot remove advising holds placed by academic departments; the academic departments must remove their own holds.
To determine when a student is able to begin registering for Spring 2019 courses, consult the Registrar's Web Page: Registration Entry Times. http://registrar.cofc.edu/calendars/entrytimes.php
When can students register for Spring 2019 Classes?
Currently enrolled undergraduate students register for courses by assigned entry time with the Registration Tools channel on the Academic Services tab in MyCharleston. The entry time schedule is based on the hours that students have earned. This does not include the hours in which students are currently enrolled.
To view the registration schedule click on the link below. http://registrar.cofc.edu/calendars/entrytimes.php
The 2018 Majors and Minors Fair was a HUGE success! Thank you to all who attended! Congratulations to the School of Business for winning the POSM Award for Best Booth!
This is an EXCELLENT resource for students who have not decided on a major! Join us tomorrow!
This is a reminder that first-year students are required to meet with their assigned Academic Advisors in the Academic Advising and Planning Center (AAPC) before they can register for classes for the Spring semester. (Honors students and Athletes do NOT have Advisors in the AAPC.) An Advising Hold will be placed on students' registration and they will be unable to register until they meet with their advisors, who will clear the mandatory advising hold. During this session, students will discuss their semester, including academic matters and any other concerns. They will also work with their advisors to develop an academic plan for the Spring semester.
To schedule an appointment, students may use Appointment Manager on the Academic Services Tab in MyCharleston or contact our office: 843.953.5981. Appointment confirmation emails are sent when the process is complete. Students should schedule appointments ASAP to prevent any delay in course registration. Advisors’ schedules fill quickly, especially with the days lost to Hurricane Florence.

Attention CofC Parents of Freshman students!!!
Are you looking for an EASY way to help your student be successful?
Encourage him or her to schedule a MANDATORY ADVISING APPOINTMENT!
First-year students are required to meet with their assigned Academic Advisors in the Academic Advising and Planning Center (AAPC) before they may register for classes for the Spring semester. (NOTE: HONORS students and ATHLETES are advised by those departments not the AAPC.) An Advising Hold will be placed on their registration and they will be unable to register until they meet with their advisors, who will clear the hold. During this mandatory session, they will discuss the semester, including academic matters and any other concerns. They will also work with their advisors to develop an academic plan for the Spring semester.
Students may schedule appointments with Appointment Manager on the Academic Services Tab in MyCharleston or by contacting our office: 843.953.5981. Students will receive an appointment confirmation email when the process is complete. Due to the impact of Hurricane Florence, appointments are at a premium; therefore, it is very important that students not only make their appointments but they keep them as well!
Make sure to check out the updated Fall 2018 Academic Calendar (click on Registrar's link below), with revisions due to the Hurricane Florence mandatory evacuation. One important point is that the last day to withdraw with a grade of W from full-semester classes is now Monday, October 29.
Please visit Appointment Manager at https://am.battery.cofc.edu/eamonline/Default.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2feamonline%2fHome.aspx to schedule Mandatory Advising appointments.
