Industry

For CCU alumni — a demographic with impressive SAT scores — salaries actually come in on the lower end. Median pay for those who graduated from CCU amounts to $45K.

Gender

Male graduates on average earn more than female graduates; the first group banks $56K per year, but the second group takes home only $39K.

Locations

CCU students enjoy their time in Conway, and nearly one in seven students actually choose to live and work there after graduating.

Degree Major

Former Chanticleers who fare the best in terms of salary hold a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and earn a median salary of $73K per year. The degree that warrants the lowest level of financial compensation is a Bachelor's Degree (approximately $57K on average annually).

Skills

Nearly one-fourth of CCU grads wind up using Customer Service at their job, which is one of the most common skills among alumni. Knowledge of Financial Analysis seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are 32 percent more than their former classmates' salaries (around $59K). PHP, Microsoft Office, and Financial Analysis are desirable skills as well.

Benefits and Perks

A lucky minority (about one-third of alumni) are fortunate enough to be compensated for vacation while just one-fifth of alumni get sick time. A large number of respondents have medical plans, and roughly half of the alumni have dental insurance. Most alums report contributing to a 401(k). Coastal Carolina University alumni are also on the receiving end of a company-subsidized cell phone.
