Financial Aid

Charleston Southern University, voted one of America's Best College Buys, costs less than average private universities in the South - and way less than average private universities nationwide. When you factor in state and federal aid, scholarships for academics, athletics, Christian ministry and music and campus-based part-time jobs, endowed scholarships, student and parent loans and payment plans (many you can't get at a public university), CSU is a very affordable option.
