Where type of benefits do CofC employees receive? What are the healthcare options?

The College of Charleston is committed to supporting our employees by offering benefits that are comprehensive and that represent the best that we can offer in coverage and cost. Health and retirement options are only a few of the benefits provided to employees of the College. We also have generous annual and sick leave plans, as well as other features that significantly impact all of our lives.

The College's official Benefits Site designed by the Office of Human Resources summarizes the benefits available to employees and provides links to several third party sites. Although we have made every attempt to accurately represent the plans, please refer to the linked information for the most accurate and current information, and please defer to HR for any questions about employee benefits, including retirement and healthcare selections.

*Please note: The College offers healthcare insurance to benefits-eligible employees in FTE positions and their dependent children up to age 26.  Under the ACA, full-time employees are those who consistently work 30 or more hours per week and those variable-hour employees who average 30 hours or more per week over a determined measurement period. Please go to for more information about the Affordable Care Act, and contact HR directly with questions about your eligibility.
