In-Person Visits to the CIE:

  • Visitors are required to make an appointment in advance if it is determined that an in-person meeting is necessary; students use Achieve (formerly Appointment Manager) for scheduling appointments.
  • Prior to entering the CIE, please check-in for appointment by calling (843) 953-1324.
  • Visitors are required to wear a face covering for their in-person visit during all points while in the CIE and Multicultural Center (MCC) building.
  • Visitors enter the MCC building through the door adjacent to the Addlestone Library and exit through CIE’s back door.
  • Signs and social distance floor markings are visibly indicated. Please be cognizant of maintaining a safe social distance at all times.
  • In following guidance on safe social distance measures, visitors are no longer able to wait inside the CIE or narrow hallway outside the CIE in the Multicultural Center. Visitors may wait outside the CIE building; a CIE staff member will call visitors to enter the building for their scheduled appointment.
