Reduced Tuition Partnership
Graduate study at half the cost!
In collaboration with surrounding school districts, Coastal Carolina University (CCU) is offering eligible school district personnel in the South Carolina counties of Horry, Dillon, Georgetown, Marion, and Williamsburg the opportunity to register for graduate level coursework taught through the Spadoni College of Education at a payment rate of 50% of stated graduate tuition. Teachers and other school district instructional personnel may qualify for the discounted rate (50% reduced graduate rate) if they are accepted for graduate study at CCU and meet the conditions that follow. Both the degree seeking (M.Ed) application for the Spadoni College of Education and the Non-Degree Seeking Graduate application can be found on our Graduate Studies website. This tuition reduction does not apply to students enrolled at CCU in the M.A.T. program for initial licensure.
Conditions for graduate course tuition reduction:
- Full-time certified employee (teacher, administrator, guidance counselor, etc.) in one of the following school districts at the time of enrollment in the course: Horry, Dillon, Georgetown, Marion, or Williamsburg. School districts will verify names of eligible employees with CCU.
- This voucher form must be signed by a district administrator/principal supporting the candidate’s enrollment in a Master of Education degree program or in a non-degree program for up to 12 hours of graduate coursework approved for professional development.
- Non-degree seeking graduate candidates acknowledge that courses taken in non-degree status for professional development may or may not be accepted into a graduate degree program and only up to 12 graduate credit hours may be approved for the reduction in tuition while in non-degree status.
- Candidates will submit this signed voucher with all other materials in the graduate application process or send to the Office of Graduate Studies each semester at least two weeks before classes start.
