Office of Continuing Studies

Part of the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies, the Office of Continuing Studies aims to connect the resources of the University with individuals and partners in the community seeking to expand their knowledge and professional skills. We develop and oversee programming and initiatives that expand educational and professional development opportunities for non-traditional students, transfer students, adult learners, lifelong learners, and working professionals.


Initiatives and Programs

Coastal Online offers assistance with finding the best online undergraduate degree for students who wish to complete their degree online. We help students with some college but no degree finish what they started. 

Continuing Education offers non-credit-bearing programming to meet the needs of South Carolina businesses and working professionals. We create tailor-made programs for local businesses and offer professional development courses to working professionals looking to upskill. 

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI@CCU) offers programming for lifelong learners (ages 50+) who seek to stay intellectually and socially active. We offer courses, special interest groups, and events. OLLI partners with colleges and departments on campus to allow its members to take part in all that CCU has to offer for those who seek to stay intellectually curious and active. 

Transfer Experience is focused on making trasfer seamless and easy for students transferring from two-year schools. Our transfer pathways and policies are designed in concert with our partner institutions such as the South Carolina Technical College System and its 16 technical colleges. For Horry-Georgetown Technical College students, we offer the Coastal Bound program, which is designed to provide prospective transfer students with meaningful academic and student life experiences that are distinctive of Coastal.
