Tuition and Cost of Living
MRED tuition costs are substantially different from the University’s general cost structure. The cost of study and the cost of living make Clemson University one of the most reasonable options for graduate students anywhere in the country.
(in-state and out-of-state)
- $27,500 per year.
- Tuition is the same in the second year as in the entering year. This includes tuition for the Minimester tour class and the summer internship. The Minimester class requires an additional $500 for travel expenses, including most meals.
- No graduate assistantships or related tuition reduction is available for this program. Appropriate calculator, laptop, books, and other educational and living costs are additional, including required student health insurance.
- Several ﬁrst-year students obtain Research Analyst positions for 10 hours per week assisting at the Richard H. Pennell Center for Real Estate Development. Second-year students may work two days weekly during the academic year at a paid internship with a local real estate entity. The program requires a 10-week summer internship anywhere in the world. Limited fellowships for exceptional students are available.
Clemson's Master of Real Estate Development Program is located at the Clemson at the Falls campus in Downtown Greenville, South Carolina. The Clemson at the Falls campus is about 45 minutes away from the main university campus, in Clemson, SC.
