Overseas Representatives

In exchange for providing these specialized services, College of Charleston will pay a commission to representatives at the time of the prospective student’s enrollment to a degree seeking program at College of Charleston. Students who apply through our overseas representatives should know that commission payments have absolutely no effect on their eligibility for admission.
