Tuition and Fees

IMPORTANT NOTE: Tuition rates are determined by the North Carolina General Assembly and are subject to change. Tuition information listed below is correct at the time of publication. See our current Catalog for more information.

Tuition payments may be made by cash, check, money order or credit card (VISA/MasterCard/American Express/Discover).

Students paying tuition and fees via credit card will receive any associated refunds on the credit card used for the initial payment. 

NOTE: Personal check payment requires the following information on the face of the check:

  • Driver’s license number of the person who signs the check
  • Current physical address of the person who signs the check
  • The student’s Coastal Carolina Student ID number.

A fee of $25.00 will be assessed for any dishonored check, such as those returned for insufficient funds, or those upon which a stop payment order has been issued.

For your convenience, tuition payments can be made at any time using the drop box located at the main entrance of the James L. Henderson, Jr. Administration Building. This drop box is easily accessible from Western Boulevard using the circle drive.

A drop box for tuition payments is available all year long outside the Security Office in the cafeteria. This drop box is accessible any time the building is open. During registration periods, a temporary drop box for tuition payments will be set up in the Student Center.

All drop box tuition payments should be accompanied by the front copy of the Registration Form.
