Faculty and Staff Email
Account Creation and Format
Email accounts are created when you are hired if you are a permanent employee, or a faculty or adjunct faculty member. Email accounts are created for all others upon request by your supervisor. A Cougars account, which allows login to campus computers and online services like MyCharleston, is created for every employee when hired.
Your email address at the College of Charleston is your Cougars username with @cofc.edu appended to it. For example, if your name was John Smith and your username was smithj, your email address would be firstname.lastname@example.org. This account is created upon your hiring at the College. If you don't know your email account name and password, contact Helpdesk at 843.953.3375 or email@example.com. If you need an email account set up, please contact your supervisor or department chair.
