Next Steps After Admission

Pay for Classes

Location: James Leroy Henderson, Jr. Administration Building

Your class schedule is a bill. Be mindful of when tuition payment is due for your classes. If you receive financial aid, make sure you have spoken with your financial aid assistant regarding your tuition payment. For information on other methods of payment contact the business office at 910-938-6342.

Get Coastal Student I.D. Card

Location: Student Center

Take your registration print out to the Security Services Office to get your Coastal identification card. Your I.D. card is free of charge. You must present your I.D. card before you’re able to purchase books from The College Store, use the Learning Resources Center (LRC), or attend campus functions.

Obtain a Parking Placard

Location: Student Center

Parking placards may be issued during student registration, at the beginning of each semester, or anytime thereafter at the Security Services Office located in the Student Center. One parking placard will be issued to each employee and student as applicable, and is to be displayed from the vehicle’s rear view mirror when possible. Each placard is issued to the permit holder, transferred between vehicles as necessary. Operators of mopeds and motorcycles are also required to register their vehicles with Campus Security. Visit the Security & Parking page for more information.

Purchase Text Books

Location: Student Center

Students are required to purchase text books for all classes, including online classes. If you plan to use financial aid to purchase your textbooks, please see a financial aid assistant for the date you are allowed to do so. Visit the Bookstore page for more information.

Be Prepared for the First Day of Class

We encourage all new students to view the campus map before the first day of class to familiarize themselves with the buildings and room numbers. If you are taking an online course log into class on the first day of the semester (courses are available at noon).
