How do I login to MyCharleston?

After you’ve been admitted, the Office of Admissions will provide you with your login credentials via your CofC admissions portal. Be sure to submit security questions and take note of your username. You will need them to retrieve your password if you forget it.

What if I have forgotten my password?

If you’ve previously logged in but have forgotten your password, review this information to complete a Self Service Password Reset (SSPR) or contact the IT Service Desk. 

Do I use the username/password I set up when applying for admission?

What if I am locked out of MyCharleston?


MyCharleston is the place to:
