    I got in the mail yesterday a paper stating that I had received the Mr. Joseph D. Aiken Scholarship for the first three years at The Citadel. The paper says that the scholarship pays the college catalogue costs. What does "college catalogue" costs include? Is it just tuition/room and board or is it everything inclusive ( so my balance for the first 3 years would be 0$) ?

    Congratulations!

    In my experience, "full catalog" means the per-credit-hour tuition cost, not necessarily room/board/books/fees, but I also am familiar with some that do cover room and board.

    SO - best to contact Citadel Admissions and get the info straight from them as the primary source. Much depends on how the scholarship is endowed with regard to specifics (you already know it is just 3 years) and how The Citadel applies the scholarship terms.

    As I am sure you did, I checked various Citadel websites, and "full catalog cost" was not fully laid out in the 3 places I found it. Other general college financial aid sites were not that helpful.

    Enjoy the feeling, call them Monday! I hope you get happy details.

    I got that scholarship along with an ROTC one. It is paying the room and board for me right now.
