How Do Financial Aid Accounts Pay While Studying Abroad/Away?

Financial aid account funds always pay to The Citadel:  While studying abroad, your financial aid account pays just as it does while you are present at the school. Once your enrollment at your study abroad college is verified, your financial aid funds pay to The Citadel Treasurer’s Office. Next, a refund check is either deposited as an electronic refund or mailed to your home address. You are responsible for interim payments to other schools. Please be certain that all of your Citadel financial aid requirements have been met well in advance and your account is in good order before you travel abroad.

General Information 

South Carolina Tuition Prepay (SCTPP): This program is designed to pay tuition and fees to Title IV (U.S. Federal Government student aid) institutions. Please inform your study abroad advisor that your SCTPP may factor into your program decisions. Out-of-state students with PrePay plans should communicate with their plan administrator when considering study aboard.

State of South Carolina Grants/Scholarships (LIFE/Palmetto Fellows/Need-Based Grant): State regulations for these state-based grants and scholarships still apply for study abroad/study away programs. Your grades will calculate into your LIFE Scholarship GPA as long as your transcript is issued by a university recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

Citadel Institutional Scholarships: Citadel eligibility requirements still apply while you are participating in a study abroad/away program. Scholarships will pay in the same manner as if you were in classes on our campus.
