Academic Advising

The academic advising process begins at Orientation when the iCharleston academic advisor meets all students. 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 Zoom 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 meet participants in small groups and discuss graduation requirements at the College of Charleston as well as how courses will transfer back when students arrive on campus during the spring semester.

All incoming iCharleston students will complete New Student Orientation in January prior to the start of the spring semester. The iCharleston program academic advisor will work with students in a group setting to get them registered for appropriate courses. Throughout the spring semester each participant will meet with the iCharleston program academic advisor to ensure that each student is integrating into the campus community, utilizing support resources, and meeting academic contract conditions.
