If you are a currently enrolled, degree-seeking undergraduate student in the second semester of your sophomore year, you must declare a major by Wednesday, October 3, 2018. Visit our Declaring Your Major page for more information on the major declaration deadline.
The last day to withdraw with a grade of “W” for a spring semester course is Monday, October 29. We invite you to come to the Academic Advising and Planning Center during our special Drop-In Advising hours in 247 Lightsey Center for questions or concerns about course withdrawal:
If you are considering a course withdrawal, it is important that you make an informed decision. There are many components to consider, such as financial aid, scholarships, housing, and insurance, among other things, and your decision should not be made lightly.
You can also schedule an appointment with your assigned advisor in the AAPC online through Appointment Manager on the Academic Services tab of MyCharleston, and the AAPC offers daily Quick Question Drop In hours, Monday-Friday from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. on a first come, first served basis if your question qualifies for Quick Question Drop In advising.

The Academic Advising and Planning Center, in collaboration with the Office for the Academic Experience, the Career Center, and SGA, hosts the annual Majors & Minors Fair event each fall where undergraduate students across the university are invited to come explore the various options College of Charleston offers.
The purpose of the Majors & Minors Fair is to provide all undecided, re-deciding, and exploring students the opportunity to speak personally with faculty, staff, and student representatives from academic programs and campus resources in one location to learn about specific requirements for majors, minors, and career options.
