The Quartermaster Account / One Card
The College Catalog contains a brief description of the uniform, books, and supplies deposit in the Expenses section. This deposit is commonly referred to as the Quartermaster Account or One Card.
The Citadel determines the amount required for the quartermaster deposit per semester. Freshman expenses will be higher than upperclassmen due to one time expenses such as uniforms.
The deposit is designed to cover the minimal costs associated with the cadet’s purchase of books, academic supplies, uniforms, accessories, haircuts, dry cleaning, and tailor shop charges. Use of these funds is restricted to items of necessity. It is possible for a student to request a one time $500 Emergency Advance from the One Card office which will be added to their student account.
