College Savings Plan

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, and the 529 Plan then sends Coastal Carolina University a check based on the amount requested.

Flywire Wire Payments

Coastal Carolina University (CCU) has partnered with a third-party provider, Flywire, to offer an innovative and streamlined way to make a payment via bank wire. Flywire’s mission is to save money for students and their families. In addition, the posting of the payment into your student account will be faster, you will be able to track where your payment is in the transfer process via a student dashboard, and you will be notified via email when it is deposited into our account. Check with your 529 provider regarding Flywire payments.

Tuition Prepayment Plans and Other College Savings Prepayment Plans

Entering students need to submit paperwork authorizing Coastal Carolina University to invoice a prepayment plan to our sponsor billing department. It is the student's responsibility to notify Wanda Cannon-Bridges at each semester if they plan to use tuition prepayment benefits. The University can then bill the plan accordingly.
