Undergraduate Degree Completion

In order to earn a Bachelor of Professional Studies degree, you will need to complete a minimum of 35 credit hours at the College of Charleston.

Beginning in the Fall 2016 semester, the College of Charleston lowered tuition for School of Professional Studies (SPS) students by about 20%. The President, Board of Trustees and the leadership at the College recognize that as a working adult, SPS students don’t have the same access to scholarships and grants as a traditional student, and are not using many of the resources that the traditional credit hour fee is based upon (such as student activities downtown, for example).

The following table details the reduction for part-time and full-time students.

Part-Time (6 hours)
Full-Time (12 hours)
