Official Transcripts and Related Documents

Official transcripts are required to complete your application. For a transcript to be accepted as official, it must be sent directly to CCU by the issuing institution in either a sealed, unopened envelope, or via an accepted secure electronic delivery method. In all cases, the record must be an official copy bearing an original stamp or seal by a school official. If the original transcript is not in English, students should also include a literal translation certified by the academic institution as being complete and correct.  

Photocopies, scans, or faxes are not considered official. Transcripts sent to CCU directly from a student are not considered official. 


You have two options to send your official transcripts to Coastal Carolina University Admissions:

  • Mail an official transcript directly from your institution in a sealed school envelope to:
