Deadlines

Your application and all materials must be submitted online, e-mailed or postmarked by the following dates.

FRESHMAN DEADLINES AND DECISION DATES

Fall semester

Early Notification Deadline

October 15: Your application and all materials must be submitted online, e-mailed, or postmarked by this date.

We will notify you of our admission decision in late December.

Early notification is non-binding. That means you have until May 1 to decide whether or not you want to enroll. Advantages: You'll know early in the process whether you've been accepted; we'll know that you are very interested in attending the College of Charleston. However, if you think you can significantly improve your grades or test scores in the first semester of your senior year, you should wait until the regular notification period to apply.

Scholarship Deadline

December 1: If you want to be considered for a merit-based scholarship, your application and all materials must be submitted online, e-mailed or postmarked by this date. Grades, test scores or other talents determine eligibility for merit-based scholarships.

We will notify you of our admission decision by April 1. Scholarships are usually awarded in February and March.

Regular Notification Priority Deadline

February 1: Your application and all materials must be submitted online, e-mailed or postmarked by this date.

We will notify you of our admission decision by April 1.

Many applicants apply during this period. We will accept applications after February 1 on a space-available basis, but priority will be given to applicants who apply before that date.

Enrollment and Housing Deposit Deadline

May 1: Your deposit must be received or postmarked by this date.

This will confirm your enrollment at the College. If you've paid your tuition deposit and your housing deposit by May 1, you will be guaranteed on-campus housing.
