Plan for inclement weather.

If you wish to meet with an academic department, please make an appointment with them separately in advance.  Please see departmental contact information at our Academic Majors page.

*Note for prospective marine science students:  The main marine science building, the Coastal Science Center, is not included on the regular campus tour.  Therefore, appointments to see the marine science department separately must be made in advance.  Please contact them directly using the contact information seen at http://www.coastal.edu/marine/prospects.html.  Meetings with the marine science department can be arranged on a space-available basis only.
