CCU announces Coastal Commitment that guarantees admission and free tuition to top performing South Carolina students
CCU has had a Top 10% Guarantee for South Carolina residents since 2014. This additional guarantee of free tuition demonstrates the University’s commitment to providing access and an affordable education to South Carolina’s high school graduates who meet the criteria.
This initiative combines existing federal and state aid as well as donor and other institutional scholarships. Some of the aid includes need-based aid, such as the federal Pell grant, for students who demonstrate need-based aid through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Other aid includes scholarships that have academic requirements with specific GPA requirements.
More than 350 South Carolina residents who are top 10% high school graduates are enrolled at CCU. The University estimates funding $1 million to support this initiative. This demonstrates CCU’s commitment to making higher education affordable and attainable.
