College Savings Plans & 529 Plans

College Savings Plans and 529 Plans are not considered Financial Aid and are not handled in Financial Aid and Scholarships. Below is some information to assist you in getting the answers you need regarding these plans.

529 Plan

The parent notifies the appropriate 529 Plan, usually by sending a copy of the student's invoice, and the 529 Plan then sends Coastal Carolina University a check based on the amount requested.

Tuition Prepayment Plans and Other College Savings Plans

Entering students need to submit paperwork authorizing Coastal Carolina University to invoice the prepayment plan to wcannonb@coastal.edu. It is the student's responsibility to notify Student Accounts each semester if they plan to use tuition prepayment benefits. The University then bills the plan accordingly.
