Coastal Carolina University Residency Application Deadlines

The Role of the University

The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education requires Coastal Carolina University to determine the resident classification of each student for tuition and fee purposes.  This determination is made initially at the time of admission.  Students who enroll as non-residents must complete the formal residency application, outlined within this document, in order to be considered for a change of resident classification.  The burden of proof rests with the student to show evidence, as deemed necessary by the state, to establish and maintain resident status.


The Application Process

Persons applying for resident classification must complete the required residency application and supply all requested supporting documentation by the close of business on the deadlines listed:
