Tuition Refunds

Drop/Add

Coastal Carolina University credits all or a portion of tuition charges for adjustments to a student's class schedule made after the start of classes depending on certain criteria. If the schedule change reduces a student's credit hours below full-time to part-time levels, or the credit hours are reduced from above 18 hours to below 18 hours, a credit may be appropriate. All schedule change credits are computed after consideration of financial aid already applied or pending for the student. (See Financial Aid eligibility and policy regarding changes from full-time to part-time status). The schedule change must be completed within prescribed time frames of the start of classes based on the following schedule:

Meal Plan Cancellations

A full residential meal plan is required for all first- and second-year students living University-operated housing during fall and spring semesters. Residential meal plans may be changed during the first two weeks of the semester. If a student withdraws, they will be charged a prorated amount based on the assigned plan (either number of days from the start of the semester to the date of cancellation or number of meal swipes used) plus any used dining dollars (if applicable).

Small block meal plans may not be changed or canceled after activation. If a student withdrawals from the University, they will be charged on a prorated basis according to the number of meal swipes used plus any used dining dollars (if applicable).

Unused meal plan balances or dining dollars are not transferable to another student, faculty or staff member. All meal plans expire at the end of each semester.
