Quick Question Drop-In

Quick-Question Drop-In is an opportunity to speak with a professional Academic Advisor about current semester issues and/or questions that are quick in nature, usually no more than 10 minutes. No appointment is necessary. Quick Question Drop-In Advising is available for all students Monday-Friday, 2:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. from the last day of the Drop/Add period through the end of each Fall/Spring semester.

Questions that necessitate an in-depth discussion will require a scheduled appointment. Students assigned to the Academic Advising and Planning Center can make an appointment with their assigned advisor through Appointment Manager located on the Academic Services tab of MyCharleston or by calling the office at 843-953-5981.
