Once registered for CSI, students will be able to pay the CSI fee online via Lesesne Gateway once they have been scheduled for classes. Please allow time for your bill to be generated; however if you have not received a bill, please contact us: COL Chris Fudge, Director, 843-953-5705 or Mrs. Melinda S. Norris, Assistant Director,; 843-953-6773.

Please Note: The Citadel will accept 529 plan payments for the CSI fee. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept payments from pre-paid tuition plans. Pre-paid plans require a per-credit-hour rate to be utilized. In an effort to offer the CSI program at the lowest possible cost, the program was packaged and a comprehensive CSI fee was determined. A credit-hour rate cannot be extracted from the CSI fee. It is advantageous to utilize a pre-paid tuition plan when students are enrolled in a full-time status.

3. A comprehensive packet of information about CSI is posted on the homepage. This packet covers topics such as what to bring, what not to bring, when to arrive and where to go, and rules and regulations. Please be sure to bring this packet with you when you arrive for CSI (you may print out the packet provided in PDF format).
