The Citadel has the following admission requirements to qualify for degree-seeking students in its College Transfer Program:
High school graduate or GED
Students must have a minimum of 30 credit hours prior to enrollment. Students must have a minimum 2.0 GPA for admission. The Citadel will evaluate your transcripts for transfer credit into our program.
These College Transfer Program requirements are the minimum necessary to qualify for admission to a College Transfer Program. Rarely are there exceptions for the requirements. If you have a question about any of these requirements, please contact CGC.
To be considered for admission to the College Transfer Program, you must provide the following information to CGC:
Official transcript from each college you have attended
If applicable, additional program specific supplemental items (questionnaire, letter of intent, etc.)
Change of Program from Cadet Day to Evening/Online
SCC Cadet’s may not transfer into any College Transfer Program (evening or online undergraduate programs) directly from the Corps of Cadets. Cadets must sit out a minimum of one full academic year – Fall, Spring, and Summer terms – from their last term of enrollment at The Citadel as a Cadet before enrolling as a student in the College Transfer Program. In addition, all current or previous cadets must be in good standing with the Corps of Cadets in order to be considered for transfer into an undergraduate evening or online degree program. Any returning, previously enrolled, undergraduate (cadet or student) does not submit an admissions application. They complete a readmission form through the registrar’s office.
Citadel Deferral Policy
Students that meet all college transfer program requirements are allowed to defer their entry term for up to one year. In the event that you request a new entry term that is more than one year from your original entry term, you will need to re-apply and go through the admissions process. Students must follow the curriculum in the catalog for the new entry term for matters of academic policy and graduation requirements. To defer your entry term, please contact our office at 843-953-5089 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
