After registering for the event, candidates should check their email regularly for important updates, but this page will be updated frequently to provide general information about the event.

All students invited to the Interview Weekend have already been admitted to the College of Charleston Honors College. The interview process is used to identify strong candidates for the Charleston Fellows Program, for Honors named scholarships, and for other special opportunities.


What is Interview Weekend? 

Interview Weekend is a uniquely designed weekend that gives students a chance to experience first-hand the powerful impact of an Honors College education. This weekend will include group and individual interview, a dinner with CofC faculty, administrators and supporters of the Honors College, and numerous interactions with Honors College students, faculty, and staff. This is not only a chance for us to get to know you but a chance for you to see why CofC Honors College is the right fit for you! 

 

Candidates recieved an invitation packet in the mail that includes information on how to register and much more. The Honors College admissions team will be in contact over the next few weeks to provide additional information as well.
