New Transfer Students


Welcome to the College of Charleston and the Academic Advising and Planning Center! We look forward to seeing you soon. In the meantime, take some time to familiarize yourself with the information here.

Preparing for Orientation Advising

New transfer students will meet with an academic advisor at New Student Orientation. Use this list to prepare for your orientation advising meeting.

Transfer Advising Days for Semester Advising

New, undeclared transfer students are required to meet with their academic advisor in the Academic Advising and Planning Center (AAPC) in their first semester at the College of Charleston. During this mandatory session, you will have an opportunity to discuss academic matters and any concerns related to your transition to the College. This would be an appropriate time to address any transfer credit evaluation questions and develop an academic plan for the next semester.

Consult this list to prepare for your semester advising appointment.

Schedule your appointment with your assigned advisor online through the Appointment Manager channel on the Academic Services tab in MyCharleston or call the AAPC office at 843-953-5981. You will receive an appointment confirmation email when the scheduling process is complete.

Transfer students who declare their academic major prior to registration holds being placed each semester (typically mid-October, mid-March respectively) will be advised by their academic department.
