Applications are currently being accepted for the fall semester of the 2016-17 academic year.

“The admissions requirements and the deeply-rooted quality of the instruction provided by The Citadel haven’t changed, only the locations from which students can study have changed,” said Connie Book, Ph.D., provost and dean of the college for The Citadel. “The Citadel’s newly expanded online learning is especially beneficial to career service people who want to complete an undergraduate degree in order to meet the criteria for military promotions. Now, they can receive a Citadel education from almost any American military base.”

While some of the programs have been available for years on campus, and some online, the following are now all available fully online:

Undergraduate Degree Completion Programs (Non-cadet programs)

In addition to service personnel stationed on American military bases around the world, non-military professionals already working in a variety of fields can apply to take the courses from home or office.

“Leadership Studies is an especially appealing graduate degree for professionals already working in many fields who understand that career progression depends upon enhancing their leadership capabilities,” said Benjamin Dean, head of the Department of Leadership Studies.

Offered under the umbrella of The Citadel Graduate College (CGC), the fully online programs are taught by the same expert faculty as other CGC courses and are held to the same high standards that have for five consecutive years earned The Citadel the U.S. News and World Report ranking of No. 1 Public College in the South.
