The Citadel Tuition Payment Plan (CTPP) allows all students and families to finance the cost of Tuition, Auxiliary Fees (Housing/Room/Board), and OneCard. The plan is offered as a service to the student, allowing the student to finance education and related costs over the period of a semester. To calculate the amount to include in the plan, students should subtract financial aid and any scholarships from their balance- and only place their uncovered expenses in the payment pan. There is a $50 non- refundable enrollment fee per each semester plans. The Installment Payment plan is based on when the plan is activated (Opening for Fall Semester is mid July and Spring Semester is mid November). Enrollment deadlines can be found on the Student Business Service web page. Failure to pay any outstanding balance by the end of the semester will result in a registration hold being placed on their account until the balance is paid off.
What if I need access to my official transcript?
Note: The Citadel Tuition Payment Plan allows a student to continue their enrollment for a current semester based on the continued good standing with the active payment plan. Official Transcripts are available when the outstanding balance on your student account is paid in full. If you enroll in the Citadel Tuition Payment Plan and need to have an official transcript, the balance of your plan would need to be paid in full in order for the official transcript request to be processed.
Is there a tuition payment plan available for the summer term?
No. Payment plans are only available for the major semester, Fall and Spring. NOTE: CITADEL does not offer a installment payment plan in the SUMMER semester.
Who may enroll?
Students at The Citadel whose academic and other fees total $300.00 or greater.
What if my financial aid changes after signing up?
Your plan will automatically adjust your installment amounts based on your student account balance. If the installment amounts increase, you will be prompted to agree to the updated payment amounts.
What costs can I finance with the plan?
All Citadel current term fees can be included in the payment plan.
What is the cost of the plan?
The plan is interest free. The college does assess a one-time administrative charge of $50.00 each semester to offset the additional cost of record keeping and billing.
What if I am receiving financial aid?
The payment plan should not be for more than the balance remaining after the application of financial aid funds.

Further, the college reserves the right to assign your delinquent account to a collection agency and you will be responsible for all collection costs, any additional attorney fees and court costs.
Returned payments will result in removal from the plan and a return payment fee of $35 will apply.
