Military and Veteran Services

Military and Veteran Services

Military and Veteran Services was created on January 1, 2015, to better serve the growing veteran and veteran family member population at Coastal Carolina University.

Our mission is to assist veterans in making the transition to college from the military and the transition to the workforce after college; to utilize the military and veteran services team to retain and graduate veterans and their family members; and to conduct training for staff and faculty on military and veterans issues.

Shebbena McGrew image“I have attended Coastal Carolina University for the past three years and the Veteran Services office has been very influential for my success: from working as a VA work study, to aiding me with academic issues and always being able to point me in the right direction to someone that can assist me if they don’t have an answer. The VA lounge has been a great place to connect with other service members and family members as well as a quiet place to get school work done.”
