Severe Weather Plan

Coastal Carolina University may announce a Severe Weather Plan for Commencement exercises on Saturday, May 10. General Admission tickets for Brooks Stadium will NOT be accepted for the Severe Weather Plan. In case of severe weather, there will be two separate ceremonies at the HTC Student Recreation and Convocation Center, located on the University's campus.  

Severe Weather Plan tickets are required for the ceremony and seating is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Graduates will be allowed up to 5 tickets each. Severe Weather Plan tickets are available for pick-up Wednesday, April 9 until Thursday, May 8, in the same manner as the General Admission tickets. 

In addition to the Severe Weather Plan tickets graduates are allotted, there may be a limited number of additional "rush tickets" available. These tickets are available for pick-up on Friday, May 10, at 9 a.m. in the same manner as the General Admission "rush tickets."


Following is the schedule for the Severe Weather Plan:

9 a.m.       Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts and the College of Science
                  (Graduate and Undergraduate) student line up at 8 a.m., HTC Center 

1 p.m.       E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration, Spadoni College of Education and University College
                 (Graduate and Undergraduate) - student line-up at 12 p.m., HTC Center   


Should the weather seem unpredictable, please check the University website at www.coastal.edu or call the CCU Hotine at 843-349-2079 to ascertain if the plan has been executed. Because of multiple ceremonies, we encourage families not to arrive before specified student arrival time for their ceremony.

Severe Weather Plan tickets may NOT be used in lieu of or in addition to the General Admission tickets for Brooks Stadium nor vice versa. Should the Severe Weather Plan have to be implemented, only "Commencement Severe Weather Plan" tickets will be accepted for admittance and only to ONE of the Commencement Ceremonies as indicated on the ticket.
