Pre-Departure

All iCharleston students depart on a group flight with a College of Charleston staff member at a pre-determined date. Families and students attend Pre-Departure Orientation the day of travel which involves final information and instructions prior to departing with College of Charleston staff members to the different locations. Coaches take students from the pre-departure location to the airport.

Group flights are organized in advance; iCharleston students are required to fly together on specified dates to their locations. These dates are set by our partner institutions and must be adhered to regardless of reason.
