Immunizations are required and need to be turned in to the Student Health Center through the link in your Student Portal. You can also contact the Health Center or call them at 912-279-4537.


About Financial Aid:

More than 85 percent of the students who attend Coastal receive some type of financial aid. This aid is funded through federal, state, outside scholarships, and institutional scholarship funds.



Orientation is required for all incoming freshmen. We see orientation as an important opportunity for students and their families to learn more about Coastal Georgia and the spirit of our Mariner Family. Click here to learn more about how to register. Questions can be sent to, or you can call 912-279-5730.


About Housing:

The College of Coastal Georgia can be your next home away from home! Our suite and apartment-style housing, available on our Brunswick campus, will give students an immersive college experience. Living on campus is a great way to see an increase in academic success and find a closer connection to the campus community.

Our Residence Life and Housing consists of Mariner Village, Lakeside Village, and Coastal Place Apartments. Mariner and Lakeside villages are our on-campus residence halls, offering the traditional college living experience for students. Both residence halls include two-person and four-person private bedroom suite options. Students will also find recreational lounges, study rooms, laundry rooms, vending machines, and mailrooms.

Coastal Place Apartments offers an off-campus living experience. Located only a 10-minute drive from our main campus, these apartments are a housing option for our non-freshmen students. The apartments include kitchenettes and full living and dining room areas. Please note that Coastal Place Apartments is only available if on-campus housing does not have space available.

Dining Services:

At Coastal, we offer a dining program that meets the needs of today’s college student. Each year, you will experience exciting changes, fresh menus, and new enhancements to your dining program. These changes are a result of the feedback and input of many students and staff members.


Veterans Affairs:

The mission of the Veterans Services staff at Coastal Georgia is to cultivate a campus community for veterans who are well-informed about the benefits they have earned; a community in which the transition from service to student is made as smoothly as possible so that our veterans can be focused and committed to academic success. We strive to engage all veterans in campus-wide programs and activities that will enhance their college experiences and all aspects of their educational goals. We commit ourselves to helping veterans build a solid foundation for their future through a veteran-friendly campus environment. The College of Coastal Georgia serves a diverse group of military personnel, their family members, and veterans with disabilities. Our students are from all branches of the armed forces, including active and inactive reserve units.


Final Documentation:

For all incoming students, your current academic coursework still matters. Changes in your academic performance or failure to turn in required documentation can impact your admissions decision, so a continuation of academic success is important. Please check your admissions status to ensure that you have turned in all of the required documents to the Office of Admissions.
