Dear Incoming International Student-Athlete:

Welcome to Coastal Carolina University. We look forward to working with you during your upcoming season. For us to provide the necessary services for you this upcoming year, we will need the documents below filled out completely and signed by both you and your parent/guardians.

It is important to understand our policy regarding your primary insurance. All student-athletes are REQUIRED to have primary insurance coverage. Failure to do so will keep the student-athlete from participating in their respective sport until primary insurance is obtained and on file with the Athletic Training Department. It is the responsibility of the policy holder to ensure that intercollegiate athletics is covered under their current policy as some insurance plans do not have this coverage available. Coastal Carolina University provides only an excess or secondary basic accident insurance policy. This means that all claims will be filed through an individual's primary insurance first, then any excess or remaining amounts will be considered by the secondary excess policy. NO pre-existing injuries or congenital disorders will be covered under the secondary insurance policy.

Please go to the Insurance FAQ for further details. 

If you do not have primary insurance, we highly suggest the Global Student USA Preferred Plan which can be purchased through the following website: http://www.hthtravelinsurance.com/students_plans.cfm Choosing other insurance policies can delay office visits, x-rays and other diagnostic testing as well as incur medical charges that would become the responsibility of student-athlete. When you receive your coverage documents, please provide a copy, along with filling out the insurance information form.

All potential student-athletes are required by Coastal Carolina University to have proof of your sickle-cell status.  This can be obtained by having a SCT solubility screen test taken or by checking birth records to see if you had a hemoglobin electrophoresis test.  Written documentation MUST be provided, prior to clearance for ANY intercollegiate team activities; i.e. conditioning, weight training, individual practice, team practice, competition, and/or team related activities (i.e. team building).
