亚洲无码 announces tuition promise program, first private university in SC to cover tuition

By Jenna Johnson | November 15, 2023

亚洲无码 announced the launch of Buc Promise, a new renewable scholarship for Pell-eligible South Carolina residents with a minimum 3.5 high school GPA. The only private university in South Carolina making this tuition guarantee, Charleston Southern will cover the remaining costs of tuition after Pell and other gift aid are applied during a student鈥檚 four years at 亚洲无码. The program kicks off with the incoming Fall 2024 class. 

鈥淗igher education is the pathway to purpose,鈥 President B. Keith Faulkner said. 鈥淎s a first-generation college student and an alumnus of 亚洲无码, I can relate to the challenges and choices that so many students face. Charleston Southern is where I earned the opportunity for a better life, and our commitment to creating an affordable and accessible private Christian higher education experience for South Carolina residents is a decision that will impact generations to come. To transform one student鈥檚 life is to transform his or her legacy.鈥 

Students eligible for Buc Promise must: 

  • Be a resident of the State of South Carolina 
  • Hold at least a 3.5 unweighted GPA 
  • Complete the FAFSA 
  • Be Pell-eligible for more than the “Minimum Pell Grant” 
  • Enroll full-time in a traditional degree program 
  • Be pursuing a first bachelor鈥檚 degree 

Buc Promise is renewable each year, provided the student maintains eligibility. 

鈥淲e are excited to reveal this tuition promise program that is certain to change the trajectory of lives for the better in our state,鈥 Dr. Anthony Turner, vice president for enrollment and marketing, said. 鈥淔or many students who are Pell-eligible, finances stand in the way of their dream of earning a bachelor鈥檚 degree. And many shy away from private education thinking that the educational costs are too high. Not only will Buc Promise break that barrier for our Pell-eligible applicants, but we hope this program will shine light on how students CAN afford a Christian higher education experience.鈥
