Welcome to the Global Scholars Program


Welcome to the Global Scholars Program, a new intiative to make semesters abroad feasible for all cadets at The Citadel. The program offers cadets enrolled in nearly every academic major at The Citadel to spend a semester abroad, taking courses relevant to their majors, while paying nearly the same amount for all study abroad costs as they would pay for a semester of study at The Citadel.

The Citadel is accepting applications for the Fall 2017 Global Scholars Program through August 1st. Spots are still available on our Athens and Cyprus programs for students who are interested in studying abroad during the Fall term. Contact the OIDP for more information at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ! APPLY HERE!


In order to fulfill its objective of making study abroad feasible for all students, the total costs of the Global Scholars Program are the same as a semester of tuition and fees at The Citadel + a $500.00 program fee. Global Scholars may enroll in more than 18 credit-hours or participate in additional excursions or activities not included in the Global Scholars Program for an additional cost.

The Global Scholars tuition and fees cover:

  • Round-trip airfare
  • Up to 18 credit-hours of courses
  • Lodging
  • Meal plan
  • Textbooks
  • Excursions


The dates for the Fall 2017 Global Scholars programs will vary by program location. Students can expect their semester programs to begin in mid-early September and to end by mid-late December.

Welcome to the Office of Study Abroad!

One of the primary goals of The Citadel’s strategic initiatives is to Develop Principled Leaders in a Globalized Environment. Accordingly, in order to provide a globalized learning environment, The Citadel has made great strides in creating momentum in the area of international education.

The Office of Study Abroad, International, and Domestic Programs (OIDP) was created to provide students with significant opportunities for academic and culturally rich experiences abroad. We know these programs enhance the overall learning experience and cadets will be better equipped to engage society both locally and globally. Our commissioning cadets also advance their standing for assignment when they have global experiences and language acquisition as a part of their academic experience.

There are a myriad of study abroad opportunities available to fit each student’s individual ambitions, academic needs, and interests. The duration and type of program typically range from semester abroad, summer programs, international internships, service learning, and exchange programs. All of these programs, although different in scope, allow students from all disciplines the means by which to enrich their professional goals while also progressing through their individual academic pathways.

Citadel students are strongly encouraged to study abroad as part of their college experience. Whether it's for a semester or a few weeks, connecting with people and places in another part of the world leaves a lasting impact on a students' perspective and world view.
