Financial Assistance Outside of The Citadel
College Budget Plans
Tuition Management Systems (TMS) is one of a number of special plans by many of the larger banks which will pay college fees when due and arrange for a parent or sponsor to repay on a prearranged monthly budget schedule extending over the year. Contact the Office of the Treasurer or TMS.
Private or Outside Scholarships
Numerous corporations, employers, professional organizations, foundations, local civic organizations, churches, and high schools make scholarships available to Citadel students. However, finding outside or private scholarships requires initiative on a student's part. If you are interested in these types of scholarships, consult with your high school counselor, employer, or civic leaders and use the local library to locate information on organizations that offer scholarships.
