Getting Started
At The Citadel, students can study abroad for a full semester, over the summer, or during spring-break. There are two main types of programs, Citadel-sponsored and Independent programs. On faculty-led summer and spring-break programs, students go abroad with a Citadel professor and earn Citadel credit. On these programs, students pay a program fee to cover travel expenses. On Citadel-sponsored semester programs, such as the Global Scholars Semester program, students pay their normal tuition and fees and study at a host university to earn transfer credit towards their degree here at The Citadel. On all independent programs (summer or semester) students will make payments directly to the program provider and earn transfer credit upon successful completion of the program.
