How do I apply for residency?
Complete a Residency Determination Request
All applicants (with the exception of Career and College Promise applicants) must complete a Residency Determination request to determine their tuition status (in-state or out-of-state) prior to completing and submitting an admissions application.  Documentation may be required during this process.  View the Helpful Hints Guide for Residency Classification for a list of information that may be required to submit the Residency Determination.  Please have these documents on hand prior to starting your Residency Determination.
You can complete your Residency Determination online through RDS.
How do I apply online?
You can apply online through CFNC.org. Once we have received your application, we will notify you via email as to your next steps. If you have questions, please contact the Admissions Office at admissions@coastalcarolina.edu or 910.938.6394.
Do I need to take the placement test?
As part of the admissions process, placement into college-level classes must be determined.  If you have previous college credit in English and math, or if you have graduated from a United States high school within the last 10 years, an Academic Counselor may waive your need to take a placement test.  If that does not apply to you, placement test scores are required.
When do I register for classes?
If you are a new or returning student, your registration date will be given to you by the Academic Advisor/Counselor when you are admitted to Coastal. Current students will receive registration information through their Coastal email.
