Charleston Southern University > Tuition and Financial Aid

Tuition and Financial Aid

Private University = expensive university. Right?

Not so fast. Did you know that 95% of Charleston Southern University students receive financial aid? Yes, it's true. Voted one of America's Best College Buys, CSU 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. Get started by completing our CSU tuition worksheet.

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