College of Charleston - Sit-Down

A “sit-down” is a 30 minute, one-on-one, informational interview intended to inform the student about the College of Charleston and answer any specific questions you may have regarding the school or your particular admissions process. They are not evaluative. Parents are welcome, but not required, to join the student at a sit-down. The student is not required to bring any documents, however a transcript and activity resume/list are both appropriate and can help guide the discussion for specific feedback and advice. Knowledge of your test scores is also a plus.
