Welcome Parents and Families

Welcome Parents and Family Members! As one of your cadet’s primary advisors, you play a key role in the success your cadet will have as a member of The South Carolina Corps of Cadets. We respect this responsibility and want to assist you providing effective guidance that the cadet can use to make good decisions. Providing informed guidance requires an understanding of the institution and information on the cadet experience at The Citadel.

Studies show that citadel_cadet_diplomaa college student's level of performance is significantly higher when their parents and family members engage in an informed way. First and foremost, that means listening to their concerns, reminding them that you have confidence that they can navigate their challenges and then providing them with encouragement to use the system The Citadel has designed to support their education and experience. It is important at this point in their lives that they process the information and advice, then make a decision and deal with the consequences themselves - good or bad.

We hope you will join us on The Citadel's Parent and Family Portal where you will find interesting articles and tips for navigating life as an advisor to your cadet.  It is open to all members and friends of our cadets. On this site you will find information that does not change very often, so the Portal is where you want to be for the latest information.

If you have a question or need information we don't have on th ePortal, don't hesitate to call us at 843-953-6088 or by email at
