University of Charleston


We recognize that every student has a distinct path to realizing their goals. Our unique curriculum, options to get credit for what you have already done, and other services, offer support for each student to succeed on their educational journey.


Academic Services

For first year students, we offer our First Year Experience curriculum that combines academic work with co-curricular and residential life activities to make your first year easier.

Every UC student will have an Academic Advisor to help guide their decisions in terms of classes, curriculum, goal setting and more.

Our Academic Success Center offers tutoring, testing and disability services.

Our Student Solutions Center is the central hub that includes the Registrar Office, student services including ID cards and adding money to your Eagle Bucks card, record keeping and more.


Academic Opportunities

We also offer opportunities for you to get credit for prior learning, independent study, an internship, or to create your own independent learning project. These opportunities are created with the input and support of a faculty member, and are assessed by that faculty member to determine the outcome of that opportunity and its assigned credit.

A list of these opportunities can be found here.
