Hello in-coming Freshman and Families!!

Please let me be one of the first to welcome you to the College of Charleston. We hope your time here over the next four years at “The College” is productive, fulfilling and memorable.

As you figure out new roommates, supplies for the dorm room, and courses to take, the last thing that anyone wants to think about or plan for when coming to college is the possibility of getting sick or injured. However, over the course of four years, it is likely that students will encounter some sort of illness or malady.

Please peruse our website as it is here that you will find all the information you need regarding our location, the services offered, how to make an appointment, our hours of operation, etc. 

Please know that South Carolina law requires the College of Charleston to inform incoming students, especially those living on campus of the risk of contracting meningococcal disease and Hepatitis B. If you would like to read the CDC guidelines on Meningitis, please go to:  https://www.cdc.gov/meningitis/index.html. For the CDC’s guidelines on Hepatitis B, please follow this link: https://www.cdc.gov/hepatitis/hbv/index.htm

In our efforts to prevent such diseases on campus we request that you

1) Turn in an up-to-date official immunization record (asking your home doctor to send in/fax works well too)

2) Print out and complete the health history form by August 1.
    (Forms available at Student Health)     

The forms are available here: http://studenthealth.cofc.edu/health-immunization-forms/index.php .

You can send in the forms via mail or drop them off at SHS while you are on campus for orientation—we would love the chance to say hello!

We hope you have a happy, safe and healthy remainder of your summer.

We look forward to meeting you while you are here on campus.
