Veterans Services

The Office of Veterans Services was created on January 1, 2015, to better serve the growing veteran and veteran family member population at Coastal Carolina University.

Our mission is to assist veterans in making the transition to college from the military and the transition to the workforce after college; to utilize the Veterans Success Team to retain and graduate veterans and their family members; and to conduct training for staff and faculty on veterans issues.
