Can I pay for this with funds from my restricted account?
Restricted accounts are for necessities (not optional expenses). However, on an individual basis (after mid-terms), if students are participating in a Citadel sponsored event (like a Kaplan course), and IF students have excess funds left in a restricted account, the Treasurer’s Office may allow the student to apply these funds to Kaplan. If you meet these guidelines, contact The Citadel Treasurer Office Bond Hall 112, or email with your name, CWID, and reference this document to inquire if you are eligible.

Will Kaplan contact me directly?
Once you have completed your online registration through The Citadel’s website, The Career Center will communicate first with Financial Aide to determine your EFC score, with the Treasurer’s Office to ensure you are eligible to enroll. This communication will happen typically on 16th of the month (or the following Monday in the 16th falls on a weekend).

Kaplan will mail your print materials to The Citadel Career Center. They should be available the week after your registration. The Citadel Career Center will email you when these are received. You should also receive communication from your Kaplan instructors once your course has started. For any issues, contact or visit The Citadel Career Center or your Kaplan Academic Advisor.
