Nov. 1, 2022

Ellucian, the company that developed MyCCU, recently announced a new user experience enhancement for MyCCU on phones. Information is easier and faster to find with the new miniaturized card layout for MyCCU on devices with small screens.

What are they?

  • Mini cards are smaller representations of MyCCU cards, displayed on smaller screen sizes (e.g., your mobile phone) 
  • Each mini card displays the card name and an icon representing the card content
  • Clicking a mini card launches an expanded view of the card

MyCCU is available to all students!

August 4, 2022

Coastal Carolina University's ITS shared an important new service with students on Thursday, August 4, 2022. ITS introduced all students to their new online personal dashboard – MyCCU

MyCCU is a single entry point to use various CCU services (such as Self-Service or WebAdvisor, Moodle, etc.) and resources (quick links, class schedules, and more) online. These services/resources are organized via “cards” in a single, customizable web location. Each individual may personalize their dashboard according to their preferences, which helps to simplify daily tasks and information access.

Access and personalize your MyCCU:

  • Visit myccu.coastal.edu from any browser or click on MyCCU on any CCU webpage.
  • Download the MyCCU app from the Google Play or Apple store.
  • Visit the MyCCU resource page to access a short 4 minute video tutorial and instructions to learn how to personalize your dashboard.

Special Notice: WebAdvisor is being phased out at CCU. Although WebAdvisor is not going away yet, all students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to use MyCCU instead of WebAdvisor to access up-to-date services and resources beginning in Fall 2022. For example, use MyCCU to access Self-Service, which replaces WebAdvisor and many of its former services.

Where can I ask MyCCU-related questions or provide feedback?

To provide suggestions for new card ideas, please use the Feedback Form card inside MyCCU. You may also submit questions in an online services request to ITS.

ITS will add new resources and/or adjust MyCCU cards in concert with University Marketing and Communication, the campus community, and the vendor, Ellucian.

Chants Up and have a great academic year!

MyCCU is available to all faculty and staff

July 14, 2022

Faculty and staff received an email announcement welcoming their use of the new MyCCU online, personal dashboard services. Faculty and staff should reference that email for additional MyCCU information and access instructions. Please share feedback on MyCCU to help prepare for its release to all students.

In the last several years, CCU has made and is still making strides to move resources and services from WebAdvisor to Self-Service (or other applications). Beginning this month, ITS encourages all faculty and staff to use MyCCU as their new access point to CCU services (such as Self-Service, Moodle, etc.) and resources (quick links, weather, and more). WebAdvisor is being phased out at CCU. WebAdvisor is not going away yet; however, faculty and staff are encouraged to use MyCCU to access up-to-date services and resources.

When will ITS announce and introduce MyCCU to all students?

In early August 2022, ITS will release MyCCU to all students. At that time, MyCCU access links will be visible throughout the CCU website; all users may access a MyCCU video tutorial at that time as well.

Note: MyCCU is an evolving service and will continue to grow to meet the needs of students, faculty, and staff.
