The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, is a state-supported, comprehensive university located in Charleston, South Carolina.

It is one of the six senior military colleges in the United States, and has 14 academic departments divided into five schools offering 20 majors and 25 minors. The Citadel is best known for its undergraduate Corps of Cadets military program for men and women, which combines academics, physical challenges and military discipline. In addition to the cadet program, civilian programs are offered through the Citadel Graduate College with its evening undergraduate and graduate programs. In a partnership with the local community college, Trident Technical College, Citadel bachelor's degrees are offered to evening civilian students in Business, Civil Engineering, and Electrical Engineering. Students must complete two years at the community college level and two years at the Citadel. This program is known as the 2 + 2 program.

The Citadel enrolls almost 2,000 undergraduate cadets in its residential military program and 1,200 civilian students in the evening programs. While all programs make use of the Citadel campus and professors, cadets and civilian students do not share classes and only cadets live on campus. The exception to this is the veterans program, reinstated in the fall of 2007, which allows cadets who left The Citadel for active military duty to return as civilians, attend classes with cadets, and complete their degrees if certain criteria are met. Cadets also share classes with active-duty enlisted Marine Corps and Navy personnel, who are not required to live on campus or wear cadet uniforms.
