Daniell has been accepted to The Citadel in Charleston, SC. She will be part of the 18th class that has accepted women into the Corps of Cadets. The Citadel is expensive for her to attend as an out of state student. Tuition is expected to be $49,000 her freshman year. This amount covers room, board, books, tuition, and standard issued uniforms.
Her expenses for college do not cover the required clothing and supplies that she must purchase. The Citadel is a military school and she has specific things like socks, undergarments, and shoes she must purchase above and beyond the $49,000. You can see the detailed list in the Success Packet:
Sadly, due to sequestration, her father is about to lose his job. While he is actively looking for work, until he finds a job, our household income will be cut in half. Of course, FAFSA is based on prior year's earnings and surprisingly, with two students in college in the fall, our family portion actually stayed the same as it was when we had one in college. She has applied for scholarships and will be taking out student loans; however, we want to help her minimize her student loan debt. She has received some small scholarships at this time adding up to about $3000.
Any donation is appreciated and she will send you a thank you e-mail.
