Freshmen Orientation

All new students starting in the Spring of 2016 are required to attend a 1-Day Orientation program on January 7, 2016 prior to the start of classes. During this time  students will meet with representatives from their academic college, the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, the Office of the Registar, Student Life and many others.‌ 

While at Orientation students will learn what it means to be a student at CCU, ways to get involved on campus, and traditions of the University. New students will also have the opportunity to meet other students that will be enrolling at Coastal as well as current University students. Also, during this time you will meet with your Academic Advisor and get your spring semester class schedule.

Once you register for the 1-day Transfer Orientation, you may contact your Academic Advisor and go ahead and register for your Spring 2016 classes. To determine your advisor, login to WebAdvisor and click "E-mail My Advisor(s)" under the Communication section. In addition, call New Student and Family Programs at 843/349.2027 and let us know that you are going to pre-register for your classes so that we can lift your Orientation hold.

‌‌Check-in for Spring Orientation will be in the HTC Student Recreation and Convocation Center beginning at 8 a.m. The HTC Center is number 38 on the campus map
