Returner/Readmit Student Checklist

Additional Menu

Welcome back to Coker! The following checklist will help make sure you have a smooth transition back to campus:

Move-in/Check-in (residents only)

Fall 2017 move-in is Monday, August 21, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at the DeLoach Center. During this time you will be able to meet with Student Accounts and Financial Aid, as well as pick up your residence hall key.

Complete your Medical Access Fee Waiver by August 18, 2017 (residents only)

  • All residential students are automatically billed for the Medical Access Fee unless it is waived by providing proof of private insurance. To waive this fee, please complete the Medical Access Fee Waiver.
  • The Medical Access Fee IS NOT INSURANCE and only allows access to a local medical provider for limited basic acute care/sickness after a referral by the college nurse during the academic year. The student is responsible for all co-pays, deductibles, and any and all charges that are incurred.

Take Care of your Student Account

  • Students bills will be mailed to students on a weekly basis beginning no later than May 1, 2017. Balances should be paid by August 1, 2017. While you will have the opportunity to pay your bill at check-in, skip the lines by paying before. Students can pay the bill online via Webadvisor, by calling the Student Solution Center at 843-383-8002, or paying in person at the Student Solution Center.
  • Students are also required to complete the Financial Student Responsibility and Contact Consent Form before attending check-in. Most new students completed this form in the Spring. If you did not and still need to complete it, you will find that form HERE.

Register your vehicle and get your parking tag

  • Students who have a car on campus will need to register this vehicle and display a parking decal on the car. Your parking decal will be available at Orientation check-in or after that in the Student Solution Center 24 hours after you have submitted the online form.
  • Please complete the online registration form before you arrive on campus. The Vehicle Registration Form can be found here.

Complete Housing Agreement (residential readmits only)

  • Coker College is a residential campus. Coker provides residential facilities for the housing needs of our traditional full-time day students (<=23 years of age). On-campus housing is required. Students may apply to live off-campus if they meet one of the following requirements: the student lives in the local area (30 mile radius) with a parent, spouse or legal guardian; is a senior (90+ credit hours); or is 22 years of age.
  • All residential students must complete the Housing Agreement.
  • Room and roommate assignments are sent to your Coker College email in mid-July from the Director of Residence Life. The Office of Residence Life makes every effort to place you in the residence hall of your preference, but room assignments are made based on the date your Admissions Deposit is received and completion of your Housing Agreement.

Learn About Student Services & Resources

Commuter & Residential Students

  • ID Cards: Students are issued a unique Coker College Identification (ID) card when enrolled. This card is the property of the College and is held by the student only while he/she is enrolled in good standing. Students must have their ID cards in their possession at all times and must present them to an official of the College when requested. In addition to serving as official identification as a Coker student, the Coker College ID also provides access to the residence halls, dining services, the library, intercollegiate athletic events, cultural events, and speakers on campus. There is a $15 fee to replace lost or damaged ID cards.
  • Dining Services: Coker College partners with Sodexo to provide food service for the campus community. Residential students are required to participate in one of two equally priced meal plan options: 21 meals/week with $125 in CobraCash or 14 meals/week with $250 CobraCash. Initial meal plan selections are made as a part of the Housing Agreement process. Changes to your meal plan may be made prior to drop/add. Commuter students may choose to participate in a competitively priced meal plan or pay cash at any location. To learn more about our dining options, click here.
  • Campus Communication: All students are provided with a Coker College email account and a campus mailbox. Campus mail and email are considered official means of communication for the College and are the primary methods used by faculty and staff to disseminate information to students. As a Coker student, it is your responsibility to check both your campus mailbox and student email account regularly. Failure to read college communications sent via campus mailbox or email does not absolve you from complying with the content of these communications.
  • Campus Technology: Each residential student is provided 24-hour access to our computer network through wireless and ethernet port access points. The College also offers 60+ cable television stations from Time Warner Cable Television, including Striker Cinema Channel 2. Wireless internet is available across campus.
  • Trans4mations: At Coker College, we believe that the right college education is a truly transformative experience. That’s why we created Trans4mations.

  • Personal Property Insurance: Coker College is not responsible for loss or damage of students' personal property; therefore, the College highly recommends students consider securing personal property insurance for their belongings. Coverage may be offered through your homeowner’s or an additional policy obtained through your insurance provider. Additionally, you may consider a policy issued from a third-party vendor, such as National Student Services, Inc.
  • Student Health Services: Coker residential students have access to Student Health Services during regular posted office hours. Staffed by a contracted nurse, students may visit for minor illnesses, referral to contracted physicians and confidential health & wellness related consultation. The College contracts with several local physicians for limited basic acute/sickness care to provide residential students with office visits provided the student has a referral from the nurse.
