  • Student Profile Information (Majors, Minors, Emergency Contact Information, Hours Earned, GPA)
  • Student Detailed Schedule
  • Student Records Information  (Midterm Grades, Final Grades, Holds)

Q:  Does sharing access mean that my proxy can speak to someone at the College of Charleston about this information?
