Student Care Outreach

The College of Charleston strives to support students who are having academic, financial, or personal challenges that will keep them from succeeding at the College.

One strategy we use to direct this outreach is by receiving F.A.S.T reports in which a concern about a student can be shared.  In turn, the Office of the Dean of Students and the Center for Academic Performance and Persistence collaborate to follow up with the student and help connect them with various resources on campus.

Learn more on the Center for Academic Perfromance and Persistence F.A.S.T. referrals site.

More information about responding to a spectrum of student behaviors is available on The Hub

F.A.S.T. is not an emergency hotline.

For an on-campus emergency, please call 911.

The F.A.S.T. (Faculty/Friends/Family Assisting Students in Trouble)/Share a Concern system is also available in MyPortal.
