Major Events

The College of Charleston’s moratorium on campus events is in place through Sept. 13 and may be extended beyond that date based on guidance from local and state health officials.


All ceremonies will take place on Saturday, Oct. 10, with Sunday, Oct. 11, serving as the inclement weather date. If there is a storm (hurricane), the ceremony dates will be Saturday, Oct. 24, with Sunday, Oct. 25, serving as the inclement weather date. Each ceremony will last approximately one hour.

The schedule of ceremonies will run as follows:

9:00 a.m. School of Business
12:00 p.m. School of Education, Health and Human Performance; the Graduate School; and the School of Languages, Cultures and World Affairs
3:00 p.m. School of the Arts, School of Professional Studies; and School of Sciences and Mathematics
6:00 p.m. School of Humanities and Social Sciences

We realize that not everyone will be able to return to attend commencement in person so we will have planned a hybrid ceremony that will include both in-person and virtual recognition. In this way, every graduate will be recognized during the streaming of the ceremonies. 2020 graduates may choose to participate in a future ceremony.

Please know that various safety protocols will be put into place for the safety of graduates, guests, faculty and staff.
