Admission Procedures

Coastal Carolina Community College maintains an open door admissions policy for all applicants. The College serves students regardless of race, creed, sex, national origin, age, or physical handicap. Selective placement of individual students in the different programs of study within the College is determined by the admissions office, within the guidelines established by the State Board of Community Colleges and the North Carolina Community College System for each program of study and course offered.

Procedures

Except for the continuing adult education programs, the admissions proce­dure requires that the student fulfill the following requirements.

  1. Submit an application. Admission applications may be submitted to the College in person, by mail, or via the College website. Applications are also available through the website of the College Foundation of North Carolina (www.CFNC.org).
  2. Submit an official high school transcript showing proof of graduation, or GED scores (recognized by a state accredit­ed provider) which qualify as a high school equivalency certifi­cate within any of the fifty states.
  3. Submit official transcripts from all post-secondary educational institutions attended.
  4. Take any required placement tests (placement tests are valid for consecutive months from the month of administration). Students may take the entire placement test twice under the administration of the College within a two-year period.
  5. Meet with an academic counselor. No appointment needed. If you are a distance learning student, you may contact admissions@coastalcarolina.edu to receive counseling and academic advising.

The College reserves the right to refuse admission to any student whose enrollment or continued presence is considered a risk for campus safety or disruption of the educational process. Prior disciplinary records may be considered when students seek admission to the College.

Thank you for your interest in attending Coastal.  We look forward to working with you.  For additional information contact the Admissions Office at (910) 938-6394 or email admissions@coastalcarolina.edu.
