Welcome to the Coastal Carolina University Accreditation website. The  Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) approved membership at Level V, offering the Ph.D. in Marine Science: Coastal and Marine Systems Science effective Fall 2014. This site represents the collaborative efforts among the institution’s stakeholders to present a thorough and forthright assessment and composite view of the University’s programs, services, and processes related to this level change. Our collective dedication to tradition, integrity and excellence has been at the core of this process and will continue to direct our future through shared vision and meaningful advances as we strive to advance the academic programs and educational experiences of the students we serve.

With Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs Dr. Ralph Byington, and SACSCOC Liaison Ms. Chris Mee, and the many others who have been involved in the level change process, we welcome your review of the report presented here in preparation for the Peer Review visit on March 17-19, 2015. This endeavor has and will continue to direct our future and provide meaningful advances toward excellence.

Thank you for your interest in Coastal Carolina University!

Dr. David A. DeCenzo
