Office of Academic Advising
Prince Building, Room 212

Academic advisers assist students in developing and accomplishing their educational goals. Students and their advisers engage in a continuing process of communication that can influence student growth and success. The faculty and administration at Coastal Carolina University view academic advising as a vital part of higher education.

When students are accepted into the University in pursuit of a degree, they should contact the deans or department chairs of their majors who will assign academic advisers. Students are expected to arrange meetings with their advisers during each semester to plan their courses of study for the following semester and to discuss career goals.

Students should see their advisers to discuss any problems which affect academic performance, select courses for the upcoming semester, add or drop courses, discuss academic progress, and to discuss career considerations.

Information, advice, and interpretations of University policies offered by advisers do not supersede the official statement of policies and Academic Regulations described in the University Catalog. Exceptions to University Regulations cannot be made by academic advisers. Any exceptions to the policies and regulations set forth in the University Catalog must be petitioned to the appropriate committees (where applicable).

Records of academic progress will be kept by advisers and deans, but the official student records are maintained by the Office of the Registrar.

Study Abroad Advisement

The Office of International Programs (OIP) actively promotes study, work, and travel programs for students wishing to visit other countries. The University sponsors its own academic programs and maintains directories and files that list several thousand programs organized by other American colleges and universities. Coastal has entered into bilateral agreements with universities and colleges in: England, Australia, Austria, Germany, Spain, and Japan. These programs allow Coastal students to study abroad in a variety of disciplines while paying Coastal fees. Other agreements are in development, and questions about other exchange opportunities should be directed to the Office of International Programs. Volunteer, work-abroad, and travel possibilities are extensive and may also be explored by visiting the Office of International Programs located in the Prince Building, Room 105J. The OIP may be contacted by email (internationalprograms@coastal.edu).
