Meet Your Admissions Counselor

Choosing a college is one of the most important decisions you will ever make, and the Office of Admissions & Merit Awards is committed to assisting you in this process.  We offer guided tours, special Saturday visitation programs and the chance to meet one-on-one with an Admissions counselor—it's all part of our personal touch.  Do not hesitate to contact any staff member with your Admissions questions and concerns at 843-349-2170 or 800-277-7000 or admissions@coastal.edu.  Regular office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.  If you would like, you may book a virtual appointment with one of our counselors.
