Alumni Affairs

The College’s nearly 95,000 alumni are served by a staff of eight full-time professionals who administer the Alumni Association. All former students who earned credit toward a degree at the College are members in good standing of the Alumni Association. The Association’s mission is “to manifest interest in, and to promote the welfare of the College.” Its strategic plan is to engage alumni to stay informed, get involved, and give back. Staff members direct communications, organize programs and events, coordinate with our CofC Clubs around the world, provide career services, administer member benefits, and keep alumni contact information updated. Should you need assistance, please contact alumni@cofc.edu or 843-953-5630.
