Resources to Continue your Journey
Financial aid is offered for transfer program students at The Citadel. Evening undergraduate transfer program students must be enrolled in a degree seeking program and registered at least half-time to be eligible for federal and state financial aid programs. Transfer students must complete or renew the FAFSA each year to qualify for federal programs and state grants. For the 2022-2023 academic year (Fall 2022, Spring 2023, and Summer 2023), you need to file the 2022-23 FAFSA online using the Citadel School Code #003423 at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
