Billing Policy and Procedures

The Office of Student Accounts bills tuition, including lab and other class fees, room charges, board (meal plans), books, and fines, including parking violations, property damages or other penalties, if assessed. Charges are accumulated in individual student accounts and, except for pre-registration, are updated as charges are incurred. Tuition charges for classes selected during pre-registration periods and room charges for future semesters are billed at specific times prior to the start of a new semester.

Account balances are available online 24 hours per day, seven days per week through Student Account Center. The student may log in to Student Account Center and review the most current account balance, make payments or sign up for a payment plan.

Bills for advance registrations are due for payment on scheduled due dates prior to the start of semester classes per the Student Accounts Calendar. If additional charges would occur or account balances are adjusted (ex: declined financial aid, etc.) after the first scheduled semester bill payment due date, the account balances are due by the close of business on the date the charges/adjustments are posted.

Students whose accounts are settled within prescribed timelines will find little to no inconveniences attributed to the financial processes managed through the Office of Student Accounts. Those students whose bills are not paid by the due dates are subject to class cancellations, restrictions to future class schedule adjustments (drop/add), restrictions to grades, transcripts and, if applicable, diplomas. The Office of Student Accounts also utilizes outside collection services if an account becomes severely delinquent.

Payment Policy and Procedures

The Office of Student Accounts collects all funds to be applied to the student's account.


All auditors must be admitted to the University and go through the regular registration process. Auditors will be charged the same fees as students taking courses for academic credit.

Students with Financial Aid:

Students with financial aid sources assisting with college financing must follow procedures outlined by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. Except instances of some local scholarships, certain military benefits, and Section 529 College Tuition Savings plans, the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will process financial aid information to a student account. Visit Financial Aid and Scholarships for additional information.

If the student receives military benefits, please contact Veterans Affairs at 843-349-2203 or 843-349-2464. If a student wishes to process funds from a 529 College Tuition Savings plan or has local scholarships, you must contact the Office of Student Accounts at 843-349-2159.

If all pertinent documentation has been completed, financial aid funds will be credited to a student's account under the heading Financial Aid. When certain timelines, documentation and attendance requirements are completed, the financial aid funds will be transmitted to pay the student's account. If financial aid resources exceed charges, the student will receive excess funds in accordance with settlement procedures. If financial aid resources only cover a portion of the charges outstanding, the student is liable to pay the difference from personal funds.

Any changes to a student's schedule and/or financial aid after the student receives a refund may create a debt. All such debts are subject to collection and must be repaid immediately.

Student Financial Responsibility and Collection Costs

By registering for classes at Coastal Carolina University, you accept full financial responsibility for payment of tuition, fees and related expenses. If you fail to make timely payment, your account may be referred to a collection agency, and you will be responsible for reimbursing the University for the collection agency’s fees up to 25% and all other costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees, incurred in such collection efforts. You are bound by these policies for the duration of your enrollment at CCU and until all final charges are paid in full .
