In-State Residency Determinations
The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education requires Coastal Carolina University to determine the resident status of each student for tuition and fee purposes. This page provides information related to South Carolina resident requirements. Students claiming South Carolina resident status for tuition and fee purposes must complete the required residency section of the Application for Undergraduate Admission.
The initial determination of a student’s resident status is made at the time of admission. Students who fail to complete the residency section of the application will be classified as pending or nonresidents. Additional information may be requested from students who have recently relocated to South Carolina or who fail to complete the residency section in its entirety. The burden of proof rests with students to show evidence to establish and maintain their residency status.
If you have additional questions or need further clarification regarding your potential eligibility for South Carolina resident status, please contact Coastal Carolina University's residency officer at email@example.com.
