Welcome to Coker! Completing the following checklist will help make sure you have a smooth transition to your new life as a Cobra in our Bachelor of Science program.

Students taking classes in our online programs, bridge programs, or on our Hartsville campus in the evenings are enrolled in our Bachelor of Science program.

Additionally, we’d like to introduce you to your Success Coach:

All students in the Bachelor of Science program are assigned a Student Success Coach. Your student success coach will guide you through the college experience and connect you with beneficial campus resources. They work directly with students, often with one-on-one coaching, to answer questions, provide clarity, navigate complicated processes, and build relationships with the Coker community. Also, students in the Bachelor of Science program will be registered for classes each term by the Student Success Coach.
