Freshmen Parents

selden img 8497Congratulations Parents and Families on arriving to this moment!  We admire your child’s decision to select a college that is committed not only to excellence in education, but one that publicly and privately commits to a life of honor, duty and respect.

Your son's or daughter’s experience at The Citadel will be a family journey where you will continue to be an important part of your child’s education.  To support your role as an advisor, we developed this website to provide you with important tools to help you have those meaningful conversations that will keep your cadet focused on a successful education at The Citadel.

Our goal is to keep the information fresh and relevant.  If you need information before we have it on this site, please don’t hesitate to call (843-953-6088) or email us at  Either way, we will get back with an answer as soon as possible. 

And finally, as we go through the year, your feedback is important to our efforts to provide better support to next year’s families.  You can provide it via email or by clicking on the “Feedback” tab found on the left hand side of this page.  

Thank you and welcome to The Citadel Family!
