New Parents

Please visit our Parent Page,, to learn more about The Citadel's policies, procedures, and schedules. 

Dear Parents,

We are pleased to welcome your son or daughter as a new student entering our ranks this fall, and we want to assure you that we are committed to helping your freshman achieve academic and personal success.

We realize that you have so many things to remember, but we want to alert you to several important dates in the Academic Calendar.  We realize that many of these procedures will be new to you and your cadet, so we thought that it might be helpful to highlight the Furlough/Leave policies that can be found on our Web site under Furloughs,

Citadel Family Association:

Since its inception in 1993, The Citadel Family Association (CFA) has been dedicated to three main goals:
             1. To provide information to, and support for, the families of current cadets;
             2. To provide families with a forum for discussion of common interests; and 
             3. To support college initiatives.

For more information concerning the CFA, please visit

Citadel Sponsor Program:

The Citadel Fourth-Class Sponsor Program, under the direction of the Department of Cadet Activities, provides out-of-state freshmen with a caring "home away from home" during the difficult first year and often, subsequent years at The Citadel.  These sponsors, Citadel staff, faculty, local alumni, and interested individuals from the local community, provide a place where cadets can relax, watch TV,  and have a home-cooked meal. For additional information about this program, please call Cadet Activities at 843.953.5111 or visit their Web site
