Congratulations on your student’s decision to “take the road less traveled” and attend The Citadel. To help ensure a successful transition to The Citadel, we invite you and your daughter/son to consider The Citadel Success Institute (CSI). CSI is open to prospective members of the incoming class of 2026 who have been academically accepted and medically cleared.
For some of you, this may be the first time you are sending a child off to college. The transition for your child from high school to The Citadel is unique in many ways. We hope to provide an experience at CSI that will help ease that transition for both students and families. Please take time to read some of the testimonials from previous family members, visit our FAQ page, and join our Facebook Page. If you have any additional questions please contact us at CSI@citadel.edu or (843)953-5155.
“CSI represents an opportunity to gain a powerful insight into life at The Citadel.”
“I feel it is a great program that prepares students for a successful experience at The Citadel.”
“CSI not only provided college credit, but helped him to adjust to the campus, having a roommate, Charleston, and the 24-hour Citadel schedule.”
“When he called and said, ‘Mom, I am so sore and I am totally worn out, but I am having the time of my life! I love every minute of it!’ I knew then he was cut out for The Citadel.”
