Active Duty Student
An active duty student is defined as a student who is part of the active duty commissioning program on campus.
Non-Cadet Day Student
A non-cadet veteran is defined as an individual who provides evidence through a DD 214 of honorable discharge from one of the Armed Services indicating a minimum of 90 consecutive days of full-time federal active service, other than active duty for training. Veteran Day Students take classes alongside cadets, but are not a member of the Corps of Cadets and do have the military requirements of a cadet.
Returning Cadet Veteran
A cadet serving in the National Guard or reserve component of one of the Armed Services that is called to active federal duty other than for training, while a member of the Corps of Cadets can return to The Citadel as a veteran day student as long as the former cadet receives a DD-214 indicating an Honorable Discharge from active duty. The returning cadet veteran may elect to return to the Corps of Cadets.
