Academics

All CSI (Citadel Success Institute) students are required to take academic courses, which help to ease the transition between high school academics and the academic requirements at The Citadel. Students will work on writing, reading and study skills while adjusting to college-level schoolwork in a supportive environment where study time is built into the daily schedule, and students are encouraged to work with their professors as well as the CSI and Citadel support staff to excel academically.

On the Registration form, students will select their FIRST choice for their course as well as SECOND and THIRD-choice courses. In the event that their first or second choices are full, students will be placed in their second or third-choice course. We will do our best to place each student in his/her first choice, but this cannot be guaranteed due to space constraints.

1.     LDRS 101: First-Year Seminar provides the academic and life skills that help students make a successful transition to the unique environment of The Citadel. Students will develop their academic skills (reading, listening, note-taking, test-taking, time management, research skills, etc.) and will be introduced to campus facilities, resources, and support services. Some attention will also be given to lifestyle and relationship issues as well as to foundational leadership concepts. Students taking LDRS 101 during CSI should purchase and read the book A Few Good Men prior to the CSI start date in June (Session 1) and July (Session 2). LDRS 101 is not offered to those students taking MATH 119 because this Math class is a 4-hour course.

2.     MATH 119: College Algebra & Trigonometry is provided as a stepping stone for those students who must take MATH 131 (Analytic Geometry and Calculus I), which is required for all students pursuing a major or minor in Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, or Chemistry.

The following class matrix may help your student choose the appropriate classes:
