Transfer Students: After Acceptance

Step One-Review Your Financial Aid Package

Step Three-Apply for Housing

Transfer students should apply for housing immediately after acceptance. Residence Life and Housing at College of Coastal Georgia consists of two housing options. Each of these living environments provides recreational lounges, study rooms, laundry, vending, and mailrooms. These options offer convenience in proximity, cost, and connection to campus.

Lakeside Village and Mariner Village provide the traditional college living experience for primarily our incoming freshmen. Located on campus, Lakeside Village and Mariner Village are your home away from home during your first year at CCGA.

Coastal Place Apartments, our newly acquired residence hall, offers a unique living experience as our off-campus residential apartments. Located only a 10 minute drive from main campus, Coastal Place Apartments is the housing option for our non-freshmen students. Coastal Place Apartments have kitchenettes and a full living and dining room areas. Get directions to the Coastal Place Apartments.

Final Step-Advisement

You can register for classes once your course credit evaluation is completed. You have the opportunity to be advised prior to orientation and receive an approved schedule that will provide you quicker access to registration at orientation. In some cases, your advisor can register you for critical courses that are needed for your degree program before attending orientation to ensure you will get the classes.
