Academic Advising

The academic advising process begins at Orientation when the iCharleston academic advisor meets all students in person. During this meeting, students and families learn about how the academic advisor will support them during the first three semesters.

Once abroad, the academic advisor will speak with each iCharleston participant individually via Skype two times during the fall semester. Topics to be discussed include the high school to college transition, academics abroad, and time management/study skills. The academic advisor will also visit each location to meet participants in small groups and discuss graduation requirements at the College of Charleston as well as how courses will transfer back in the spring.

Once back on campus for January orientation, the academic advisor will work with students in a group setting to get them registered for appropriate courses. Each participant will be required to meet with their academic advisor twice in the spring semester and twice in the fall semester. This is to ensure that each student is integrating into the campus community, utilizing support resources, and meeting academic contract conditions.
