Why was I admitted into the CEaL program?

CEaL was established to provide comprehensive academic support to offer capable students who otherwise may not be able to attend due to their standardized test scores another opportunity to become fully admitted to CCU. Students are admitted without regard to age, sex, sexual orientation, race, disability or faith.

What are the requirements to be admitted into Coastal from the CEaL program?

Students in the CEaL program must participate in and successfully complete the program during their first semester at Coastal Carolina University. Students successfully completing the fall semester of the CEaL program will be invited to join the CINO Accelerate program. As with all CCU students, any student earning below a 2.0 GPA at the end of the program on graded hours at Coastal Carolina University, will be placed on academic probation and required to complete the SOAR program
