Accepted Student Weekend

What will it be like when you’re a College of Charleston student?

Join us for Accepted Student Weekend – March 9 or 10 – and get a taste of college life!
  • Explore the campus.
  • Chat with other students.
  • Meet your professors.
  • Check out residence halls.
  • Learn about our wide variety of extracurricular activities.

Because this is a popular event, we encourage you to sign up now and make your travel arrangements as soon as possible.

Pick the day that is more convenient for you.

We have scheduled events throughout the day that will align with your specific interests and also give you the opportunity to meet other students from your part of the country.

Some examples include:

  • Majors and minors fair
  • Regional sessions – South Carolina, West Coast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Southeast, New York and New England
  • Information for students who plan to have a career in the health professions
  • Financial aid discussion
  • Academic planning


You’ll be spending most of your time in and around the main campus, which is in the heart of downtown Charleston.

Parking is very limited in the areas around the campus. We recommend that you use one of the three city parking garages nearby.

There are more than 100 buildings on the main College of Charleston campus. However, during Accepted Student Weekend, access will be limited to about 20 of them. You can use this map to get an idea of where they are in relation to the entire footprint of the College. 


As the No. 1 tourist destination in the U.S., downtown Charleston and the surrounding area offer a wide range of accommodations for visitors. Many of the hotels and inns on the peninsula are within walking distance of campus, and many of them offer discounted rates for families and individuals attending official College of Charleston events. When making reservations, remember to mention that you'll be in Charleston for a College of Charleston event so that you can take advantage of any applicable discounts.

The weather for Charleston in early March is expected to be? Wait for it ...

Sunny, breezy and mild. We hope.

So that you can come prepared, keep checking the weather forecast for the region. Probably until the last minute, because early spring can be very unpredictable in our neck of the woods.
