Students eligible for $1000 after campus visit

Prospective students have an opportunity to receive $1,000 after touring Charleston Southern University, the Lowcountry’s only Christian higher education institution. The $1,000 Tour Treasure Grant is provided to a student if they attend an official visit such as a personal tour, A Day in the Life, or First Look event with the Office of Admissions before August 2023. To be eligible, a student must enroll as a first-time freshman or transfer student in the fall 2023 term, submit the 2023-2024 FAFSA, and live anywhere in the world outside of Berkeley, Charleston, or Dorchester counties. 

“Campus visits are the best way for a student to decide if this will be their home away from home,” said Tiffany Coleman, executive director of undergraduate admissions. “Whether they experience A Day In The Life, First Look, or submerge themselves in what it means to have their Passport to Purpose; the impact on their lives will be far greater than they ever imagined.  Charleston Southern is where innovation meets faith integration and students have experiences that will last a lifetime.”

The Tour Treasure Grant is a one-time, nonrenewable grant available only within the first year of enrollment at Charleston Southern.

Prospective students interested in visiting campus may start with the popular First Look event. Learn more and register here. Other campus tour opportunities can be found at
