Coastal Carolina University is its students, staff, faculty, and partners. We are all excited and ready to get back on campus. The Coastal Comeback plan, which many of you have helped create, is the roadmap for coming back safely to live, learn, and work on campus. Teal Nation is only as safe as we make it together and we must be flexible as our response to COVID-19 evolves based on the state of the global pandemic. To achieve our shared goal of a safe and successful 2020-2021 academic year, each of us must commit to living in accordance with the following Heal the Teal Pledge:
Before coming to campus, I pledge to:
- Monitor myself for COVID-19 symptoms for at least 14 days prior to arrival;
- Seek medical attention if I experience any of these symptoms;
- Self-report any COVID-19 exposure and/or symptoms to firstname.lastname@example.org;
- Reduce potential exposure for at least 14 days prior to returning to campus by:
- Maintaining social distance from others (at least six feet),
- Wearing a face covering;
- Avoiding large crowds and groups,
- Practicing proper hand hygiene, and
- Actively avoiding contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19.
Upon returning to campus, I pledge to:
- Follow the Safety Measures in the Coastal Comeback plan to protect Teal Nation, including but not limited to:
- Wearing a face covering;
- Maintaining physical and social distancing;
- Complying with all posted signs and University guidance;
- Frequently sanitizing my personal spaces;
- Practicing personal hygiene by washing my hands frequently; and
- Monitoring myself for COVID-19 symptoms and getting tested if necessary.
- Complete the training made available to all members of Teal Nation;
- Comply with all University Housing guest and visitor policies, and I will not host or join events that violate the University, local, state, and federal guidance.
- Reduce risks while I am off campus by following the University guidelines and training expected of me while on campus;
- Get my flu shot absent any vaccination concerns;
- Immediately self-report any COVID-19 exposure and/or symptoms to email@example.com;
- Follow all quarantine and isolation guidance until cleared by Student Health Services (SHS);
- Attend classes and activities online—not in person—if I am required to be in isolation or quarantine. I will not return to in-person classes and activities until cleared by SHS.
- Respect others who may have concerns greater or different than my own; and
- Help hold my friend group accountable to our shared Heal the Teal Pledge.
I pledge to Teal Nation that my behavior will mirror my pledge—as detailed above—to make the 2020-2021 academic year safe and successful, as we all look forward to returning to CCU’s campus and actively participating in campus life.

Coastal Carolina University's Fall 2020 Housing and Meal Plan Rates
Thursday, June 18, 2020
The CCU Board of Trustees adopted housing and dining rates for the 2020-2021 academic year with the revised academic calendar and our response to COVID-19 in mind. Importantly, the adopted and published rates did not increase from last year and will be frozen again in academic year 2021-2022. University Housing and our dining halls will open early this year on Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2020, to accommodate a physically and socially distanced move-in process and remain open to all residents beyond the end of face-to-face classes. This extended housing and dining calendar will be at no additional cost to our residents and has been established to support the Coastal Comeback Plan.
Coastal Carolina University’s Plan for Spring 2020 Housing, Dining, and Parking Credits
Wednesday, April 1, 2020
Following today’s guidance provided in the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education’s (CHE) news release, Coastal Carolina University (CCU) is now able to publish its plan to provide a prorated credit of housing, dining, and parking charges to current students who had a housing assignment, meal plan, or a parking permit in the Spring 2020 semester and were dislocated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
CCU implemented a number of decisive and timely measures to safeguard the safety and health of its students, staff, and faculty well before COVID-19 was labeled a pandemic by the World Health Organization, and in coordination with local and state authorities. The decision to provide limited authorized access only for those students who received written approval to reside on campus during the online academic instruction period went into effect on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. CCU will calculate the prorated credit of housing, dining, and parking charges from this date.
The University intends to credit student accounts on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, and eligible students will begin to receive funds as early as Friday, April 10, 2020. These credits will be applied to a student’s account in the current term—Spring 2020. If an eligible student’s account is paid in full, a direct deposit or paper check in the amount of the credit will be issued. Current account balances are viewable on WebAdvisor and will not reflect these credits for eligible students until April 7, 2020.
As per CHE’s guidance, students who remain enrolled for the remainder of the semester are eligible for these credits. Those students who have been granted extraordinary approval to continue living on campus during the University’s delivery of online instruction are not eligible for a credit. Tuition and other academic and student service fees will not be credited as CCU will continue to provide instruction, academic resources, and critical student services online as per its academic continuity plan and adjusted hours schedule in accordance with its mission and Governor Henry McMaster’s Executive Orders.
Residential students not granted extraordinary approval to remain on campus will be eligible for the housing, dining, and parking credit without regard to their move-out date. Please remain safe and comply with all local, state, and federal guidance regarding physical distancing and relevant travel, shelter-in-place, and stay-at-home orders.
The University Housing Call Center is open now and move-out appointments are available from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, April 3-5. CCU intends to make more move-out appointments available in early June, in accordance with the local, state, and federal guidance. Residents should monitor their CCU email account or call 843-349-6400 for more information.
