Weather Policy

The College of Charleston monitors the weather for Commencement weekend 24 hours a day.

If inclement weather occurs, the President’s Office will make an announcement that will be prominently displayed on the College of Charleston website home page ( as well as on local TV and radio stations. There is a possibility that this will delay the start time of the ceremony, and if so, this information will be included in the announcement.

For the December 2021 ceremony, the stage is indoors in the TD Arena, so there is no alternate location in the event of rain.
