Returning Cadet Veterans


A cadet serving in the National Guard or reserve component of one of the Armed Services that is called to active federal duty other than for training, while a member of the Corps of Cadets can return to The Citadel as a veteran day student as long as the former cadet receives a DD-214 indicating an Honorable Discharge from active duty. If the cadet has completed 4 semesters as a cadet he/she will be eligible to receive the cadet ring and diploma once academic requirements are met. The returning cadet veteran may elect to return to the Corps of Cadets.
