Campus Visit Options 

Campus Tours

Campus tours start at Admissions in Craig Hall, 65 George Street (number 94 on our campus map). An admissions counselor will start your tour with a 30-minute information session. Then one of our student tour guides will take you on a 75-minute walking tour of campus. Usually you'll visit a residence hall, the library, classroom buildings and the Stern Student Center. Please allow two hours for your visit. But first, you have to get here! Use this video as a guide.

Our tours are very popular! So be sure to reserve your space at least two weeks prior to visiting campus. Once you've signed up, we'll send you an email confirmation with more information. We offer tours year round on weekdays and some Saturdays. Before making your travel plans, check available tour dates and times and then make your tour reservation.

Contact your admissions counselor if you have questions or concerns regarding your campus visit. 

Self-guided Tours

On days that we don't host campus tours, download a campus map, or pick one up from Admissions in Craig Hall at 65 George Street (#91 on the map).

Classroom Visit

The Office of Admissions is happy to invite all high school juniors and seniors to attend a class at the College of Charleston. Classroom Visits are available Monday through Friday during the fall semester to both juniors and seniors and during the spring semester to seniors only. If you are interested, please check the academic calendar to ensure classes are in session when you plan to visit. Complete the classroom visit request form and we will be happy to make arrangements for you.

Honors College Information Sessions

Honors Information Sessions are designed to give prospective students an inside perspective on the Honors College, including information on program benefits, alumni outcomes, scholarship opportunities, and the application process.

Please visit the Honors College website to plan your information session and visit with the Honors College. If you plan on visiting the College of Charleston on a day an Honors Information Session is not offered, you are welcome to stop into the Honors Center at 10 Green Way where you can receive a packet of information. Please also feel free to email us at honorsvisits@cofc.edu.

Group Tours

We are happy to arrange special tours for groups sponsored by a school or organization. Group tours can accommodate 10 to 60 guests and are scheduled Tuesday through Thursday on the same calendar as regularly scheduled tours (no school holidays or days where only information sessions are offered). Once you’ve selected a date, complete our Group Tour Request Form and we will happily work with you to organize your visit. Please note that submitting this form does not confirm your plans, your visit is not guaranteed until you receive a confirmation email from our campus visit coordinator.

If you are coming on your own with just a few family and friends, rather than requesting a group tour, you will need to register for one of our regularly scheduled campus tours.
