Academic Advising and Planning Center


The Academic Advising and Planning Center (AAPC) prepares undergraduate students to navigate all aspects of academic planning by promoting an atmosphere that encourages self-exploration and resource utilization in support of academic success, as well as the timely and informed pursuit of an academic major.

Preparing for Orientation

Visit our Preparing for Your Orientation Advising Appointment page prior to attending your advising session during New Student Orientation. 

All new first-year students, except Honors, student athletes, and new transfers, should access the online learning module that will help them better prepare for orientation.  The Academic Advising and Planning Center will email these students approximately two weeks prior to their registered Orientation session with instructions for accessing the online learning module.

Please note that the completion of this learning module is designed to better prepare students for their advising experience at the College of Charleston.  Students are not expected to create a course schedule during this module; this will occur when students come to orientation on Day 2.

Schedule an Appointment

Schedule an advising appointment with your assigned advisor in the Academic Advising and Planning Center online with Appointment Manager.  For more information, visit our Advising Appointments page.

How to Find Your Advisor

You can find your advisor's name via the Academic Profile box on the Academic Services tab in MyCharleston or by viewing your Degree Works audit.  Newly admitted students will be assigned an academic advisor after attending New Student Orientation.
