The Citadel Board of Visitors approves tuition and fees for 2014-2015

The Citadel Board of Visitors approved an increase in tuition and mandatory fees for the Corps of Cadets of 2.4 percent for in-state students and 3.6 percent for out-of-state students. The increases, the lowest since 2001, mean that in-state cadets will pay $11,098 and out-of-state cadets will pay $30,706 for tuition and mandatory fees.  

 The Board of Visitors also approved fees for the evening undergraduate and graduate programs in CGC. All CGC fees will increase 2.4 percent for in-state students and 3.6 percent for out-of-state students.

 CGC students in graduate programs will pay $538 in-state or $896 out-of-state per credit hour next year. Costs for Evening Undergraduate students per credit hour will be $432 for in-state and $792 for out-of-state students. Those in professional development programs will pay $126 for in-state and $377 for out-of-state per credit hour.

 “This year’s increase is the smallest for in-state students since 2001,” said Col. Joseph Garcia, The Citadel’s vice president for finance.  “We realize that college costs are a challenge for students and their families. I believe this budget reflects a solid balance between holding down costs while still maintaining the quality of our programs and the value of a Citadel education.”

 The increase, which takes effect for the 2014-2015 academic year, accounts for rising costs for personnel,   technology and infrastructure upgrades, as well as new programs related to accreditation and strategic initiatives.   

 “The Citadel has gained national recognition for many of its programs and we must continue to offer cadets and other students the high quality of education for which The Citadel is known,” Garcia said.

 Students will receive invoices for the 2013-2014 academic year in July.

 To help families of cadets prepare, The Citadel provides the information below for “all-in” costs. These costs include room, board, uniforms, laundry, dry cleaning, infirmary use, books, haircuts and other expenses not required by most colleges and universities.  All cadets must live on campus and wear uniforms which are included in freshman fees. These costs do not include other fees as determined by the college, such as lab or parking fees which vary according to the academic schedule of each cadet.
