Tuition and Financial Aid


Private University = expensive university. Right?

Not so fast. Charleston Southern University, voted one of America's Best College Buys, costs less than average private universities in the South -- and way less than the average private universities nationwide.

Look past the sticker price:

  • Factor in state and federal aid;
  • Factor in scholarships for academics, athletics, Christian ministry and music;
  • Factor in campus-based part-time jobs, endowed scholarships, student and parent loans and payment plans (many you can't get at a public university)
  • Factor in the unique benefits of a private Christian university (those are priceless)

Now, can you afford not to choose Charleston Southern?

Our financial aid specialists will work with you -- one-on-one -- and help you make it happen.

One more thing we cannot stress enough: apply for financial aid early.
