HOW DO I LOGIN TO MYCHARLESTON…

for the first time? After you’ve been admitted, the Office of Admissions will email you a unique link and instructions. Your username will be your College ID number; you will be prompted to create your password. Be sure to submit security questions and take note of your ID number. You will need them to retrieve your password if you forget it. 
after I’ve set up my account? Log into MyCharleston (my.cofc.edu) using your College ID number and password.
after I’ve paid my enrollment deposits? The Information Technology Helpdesk will email you permanent login credentials, so you can have access to the MyCharleston Student Tabs. Your username will then become a combination of your last name and first initials; you will no longer use your ID to login.

WHAT IF I HAVE FORGOTTEN MY PASSWORD?
If you’ve logged in and created your account but forgotten your password, select “Forget Password” at my.cofc.edu, enter your College ID number as your username and answer your security questions. If you did not set up security questions, you must contact helpdesk@cofc.edu or call 843.953.3375 to reset your password. (Note: Helpdesk will ask for your ID number.)

WHAT IF I HAVEN’T RECEIVED AN EMAIL WITH LOGIN INSTRUCTIONS (OR I CAN’T FIND IT)?
Check your spam folder. If you did not receive your initial email or have misplaced it, contact mycharlestonapplicant@cofc.edu. Typically, you’ll receive an email at the address provided on your application within four days.

DO I USE THE USERNAME/PASSWORD I SET UP WHEN APPLYING FOR ADMISSION?
No, the online application is a completely different system; your username and password will not work in MyCharleston.

WHAT IF I AM LOCKED OUT OF MYCHARLESTON?
Contact helpdesk@cofc.edu.
