Frequently Asked Questions
Housing applications for fall open in the spring each year. Students must apply early as we generally have a waiting list. Read more frequently asked questions pertaining to housing on the Housing page!

Any Coastal Alabama Community College student who will be considered full time during the semesters they live on campus and are 16 years of age or older. During Fall and Spring semesters a Full-time student is defined as taking 12 or more credit hours and in the Summer Semester a Full-time student is defined as taking 6 or more credit hours. Exceptions are made for programs that require less credit hours, such as the Nursing Program.
POLICY OF NON-DISCRIMINATION: The Housing Office accepts applications for Residence Hall assignments regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, or qualified disability. Residence Hall assignments are determined on a first come, first serve basis, after pre-defined scholarship recipients have been assigned.
A non-refundable application fee of $100.00 is required for the Fall/Spring semesters, or $50.00 for the Summer semester. Financial Aid will not cover the costs of the Application Fee. You can log into your OneACCS account to pay your application fee.
Unfortunately, no. All application fees are non-refundable, but if a spot becomes available you will be notified.
You can find options to set up a payment plan in your OneACCS account via Touchnet (the payment portal).
In order to cancel your application or contract, you must complete the online Housing Cancellation form. If you are interested in cancelling your application, you will not be refunded the $100.00 application fee. If you are interested in cancelling your contract once already living on campus, you must meet one of the following requirements:
A. Have gotten or about to be married.
B. Military Orders.
C. Have fulfilled your degree plan criteria and have less than 12 credit hours to complete in order to graduate.
D. Have been directed by your physician to live off campus.
If you are still requesting to live off campus but meet none of the above criteria, you can submit a hardship letter to the Housing office for review at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Housing is offered at the Bay Minette and Brewton Campuses. Be sure to visit the Residence Halls page for details.
Yes! There is room on the application to make a request but if you don’t, we will match you with another resident based on your application answers.
In the case that there are more applicants than available space, the Housing Office will maintain a waiting list for students applying for Housing. Students on the waiting list are advised to periodically check their status with the Housing Office and prepare other Housing arrangements in the case that space is unavailable. For students applying for or entering during the spring semester, the fall waiting list will carry over to the spring semester.

Resident Assistants, or “RAs,” are full-time students who live with the residents and assist the Housing Office in managing facilities, coordinating activities and programs, communicating with residents, and policy reinforcement. They direct their efforts toward building a community atmosphere.
RA applications are accepted in the spring semester for the upcoming academic year. We are continually looking for candidates who have an interest in making a positive and lasting contributions to Residence Life at Coastal Alabama. For more information, contact the Housing Office at 251-580-2121.
Parking Decals are available for purchase through the Safety page on the Coastal Alabama website. All students and employees are required to have and display the appropriate decal each semester. There are designated parking areas across all campuses for Faculty and Staff, as well as no-parking zones. Violators may be subject to fines for misuse of designated parking. Each Residence Hall has its own designated parking areas either in front, behind, or next to the Residence Hall.
