2021 Special Resources

Close connections between faculty and students are at the heart of the College of Charleston academic experience.

Our goal is to maintain this point of pride to the extent possible while also providing a safe and healthy environment for all students, faculty and staff. Department chairs, faculty, and academic advisors are working closely with students to optimize their class schedules and environments. The following are resources for all faculty:

  • Academic Calendar
  • Attendance Policies for Fall 2021
  • Syllabi Policy for Fall 2021, including a list of required statements that must be included in your syllabus
  • Faculty FAQs related to the pandemic disruptions and 2021 plans
  • Student Academics FAQ related to pandemic disruptions and 2021 plans

Faculty members considering requesting clock modifications should review all three documents, consult with their department chair or academic program director, and be mindful of deadlines for requesting clock modifications. The deadline was July 1, 2021 for candidates with mandatory reviews scheduled in 2021-2022.
