Academic Advisors

Once you (a transfer student with over 24 earned credit hours, post-high school graduation) have registered for Orientation, you may contact your academic advisor to get assistance in creating your class schedule. Once your courses have been determined, you should ask your academic advisor to contact the Office of New Student and Family Programs at 843-349-2027 to have the Orientation hold lifted. Failure to attend Orientation will result in your class schedule being dropped.

Some of your courses may not seamlessly transfer into the Core Curriculum at Coastal. You may wish to set up an appointment with the director of Core Curriculum during transfer orientation to review your Coastal program evaluation form and transfer equivalency report to identify courses that can be petitioned into the Core.

Contact the director of the Core Curriculum ( or check out the Core Curriculum for Transfer Students website.
