sister state banner

The best way to attend a U.S. university is through a sister-state scholarship. 

The College of Charleston offers reduced, in-state tuition rates to qualified international students who are residents of its sister states, honoring the alliances and friendship between our state - South Carolina, USA - and yours: 

  • Queensland, Australia 
  • Brandenburg, Germany 
  • Rheinland Pfalz, Germany 
  • Thüringen, Germany 
  • Taiwan

Here's how it works

Step 1: Apply to the College of Charleston 

Step 2: Once accepted, demonstrate you're a citizen of one of our sister states (by way of your passport). 

Step 3: Enroll as an undergraduate or graduate students at in-state cost - over a 50% tuition reduction.
