You are not automatically admitted to Senior Project; you must first apply.

Once you submit your application, you’ll receive an email confirming that we’ve received your application. THIS IS NOT A CONFIRMATION OR GUARANTEE OF YOUR ACCEPTANCE INTO THE PROGRAM. Instead, you’ll be considered WAIT-LISTED until you’ve completed the application process and been accepted into the program.

For your application file to be complete, we must receive your online program application, and application essay. Please upload these documents into the application.

Once you've been accepted to Senior Project, you'll have to submit the $200 program fee and participation forms to attend (we'll email you all the details!). You can mail your program fee to: College of Charleston, Treasurer's Office, 66 George St., Charleston, SC 29424.
