Family and Guest

We know that family and friends play an integral role in each of our graduate’s education at Coastal Carolina University. This is one of the many reasons why we are excited to host ceremonies, May 2-4, to collectively celebrate the accomplishments of the Spring Class of 2024. Please use the following information as a guide for enjoyable and memorable commencement celebrations!

Celebrate your #CCUGRAD with a creative tribute video!

Graduation is the pinnacle of the Coastal Carolina University experience, and commencement is the longstanding tradition that celebrates that tremendous accomplishment! Express your excitement and pride via a video snippet for all to see on our social media platforms. So, grab your phone and get started. Once you have filmed your video, fill out the #CCUGRAD Tribute Video Submission form to submit your video for consideration. We will share the chosen videos on CCU’s Commencement Facebook page @CCUGRAD and other CCU social channels beginning the week of April 29. Videos must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 19, 2024. Every video submitter will be entered into a drawing for a CCU diploma frame for their #CCUGRAD.

Know when and where your #CCUGRAD is being celebrated.

Don’t forget to get your College Recognition Ceremony tickets from your #CCUGRAD!

Tickets are not required for the University Commencement Ceremony at Brooks Stadium but are required for the College Recognition Ceremonies at the HTC Center. Your graduate is responsible for claiming these tickets and distributing them to you before the event.
