Tuition and Fees
Clemson University has an interactive Tuition and Fee Calculator developed by Student Financial Services and the Office of Finance and Operations. The online calculator provides students an estimate of their academic tuition, fees and essential costs associated with attending Clemson University. The University encourages students to use this tool as a primary resource for estimating costs. While the tool does not calculate a final student bill, information on tuition and fees is communicated on the Student Financial Services web page.
