Tuition and Funding Options

Current and comprehensive tuition and fees can be found on the Treasurer's website here.

While that may seem overwhelming, we offer a variety of different funding opportunities for our international students to offset these costs.

The College of Charleston has an International Sister-State agreement program in which citizens of the following five locations are eligible for in-state tuition:

  • Rheinland Pfalz, Germany

  • Brandenburg, Germany

Students must prove citizenship, and in-state tuition would be applicable through all years of study. For any questions about the Sister-State Agreement Program, please contact


International students are encouraged to apply for the assistantships available in their graduate programs. Students who are awarded an assistantship are eligible for additional funding. You can find more information about the available assistantships here.


The Graduate School also offers scholarship and fellowship opportunities to degree-seeking applications. Details about the scholarships and their criteria can be found here.
