We want our students to have a comfortable transition to studying at the College of Charleston, and are dedicated to guiding our students through every step of the academic journey.

ELI Student Handbook

To ensure that current and prospective students have access to essential information and resources, the ELI staff has compiled the ELI Student Handbook.  Within this handbook, students will find information to help them plan for arrival to Charleston, as well as answers to many questions about the College of Charleston and campus life.

From immigration documentation guidelines to Charleston-area restaurants, you’ll find the information you need in this helpful guide.
