Cadet Personal Financing Worksheet

The Citadel includes many necessary items in our direct charges (those for which you will be billed) that may cost you extra at other colleges. Combined with our excellent quality, it may be easy to see why The Citadel is rated a best value.
  • The Citadel's room plan provides guaranteed housing for four years.
  • The Citadel's board plan provides 20 meals weekly (many other plans are limited to 14 meals).
  • The full cost of a basic set of uniforms is paid during the cadet's first year with decreasing annual clothing expenses.
  • Laundry and dry cleaning services are included in our costs.
  • The Citadel infirmary provides more routine coverage without additional charges than most colleges.
  • Books and school supplies are included in our costs.
  • Charges decrease about $5,000 after the first year.

As you compare colleges, it is important to consider all expenses involved – not just your immediate bill. The Citadel's costs listed below are estimated for the 2020-21 academic year.
