Certifying Employment

Welcome to Coastal Carolina University's SC Teachers' Informational page.

We are happy to offer our partnering districts and those educators in additional SC counties special rates for our education programs. In order for any SC teacher to recieve their educator's rate, our Employment Recertification Form should be filled out and sent in by August 1 of every year that you intend to take classes. If we do not receive the form, you will be rebilled at the regular rate. Please find the form here: SC Teacher Employment Verification
