How can I pay my bill?
eChecks:  eChecks are the preferred method of payment. eCheck payments are now FREE.  You can pay via eCheck on iROAR

Credit Card:  You can pay with a credit card via iROAR. Clemson University accepts VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express for tuition and student fee payments online only.  **Clemson University does NOT accept in-person credit/debit card payments for tuition and fees** A 2.75% non-refundable convenience fee will be assessed at the time of the transaction. (Please note that some debit cards have a daily transaction limit and will decline transactions over a designated dollar amount, regardless of the cardholder's available balance.)

Tuition Payment Plan (TPP): The Tuition Payment Plan is only available for fall and spring semesters. TPP is not available for the summer sessions.

TigerStripe cannot be used to pay tuition and fees.

Mail: Checks and money orders mailed to:
Clemson University
Student Financial Services
G-08 Sikes Hall
Box 345307
Clemson, SC 29634-5307

Returned Items: A check, eCheck, EFT, or credit card given in payment of University expenses that is returned unpaid by the bank creates an indebtedness to the University. Student Financial Services administers matters relating to the collection of all returned items for students and non-students.

Returned Checks: A $30 returned check fee will be charged for all returned checks. Returned tuition checks are subject to an additional charge of $5/day that accrues until the check is satisfied, up to $350 per returned item. Returned checks and subsequent fees must be satisfied with cash or cashier's check. Students with 3 returned checks will be placed on check restrictions and will no longer be allowed to present checks for payment of University fees.

Returned eChecks: A $30 returned eCheck fee will be charged for all returned e-checks due to non-sufficient funds or stop payment. Returned eChecks for non-sufficient funds or stop payment will be treated as returned checks above and are subject to the $5/day late payment fee and check restriction for 3 or more returns.

eChecks returned for invalid routing and/or account number will be charged a processing fee of $10. Returns of this nature will create a returned check receivable on the student account and tuition will be considered unpaid.

Any returned item creates an indebtedness to the University and may affect enrollment.

How do I access my Clemson University email account?
Detailed information regarding your email account can be found on the CCIT website.

Your email address will be your userid followed by "@clemson.edu" (i.e. joeuser@clemson.edu).

What is Google Apps for Education?
Your official clemson email address is userid@clemson.edu. However, most Clemson students use their Google Apps for Education accounts. When we created your UserID, we also created an identical Google Apps for Education account for you and automatically forwarded your email to it.

How do I log in for the first time and what is my initial password?
Visit http://g.clemson.edu. Your userid will be the same as your Clemson UserID. This account has its own password separate from the one associated with your Clemson UserID. The initial password will be "cu##" followed by the last four numbers of your social security number (i.e. cu##1234).

How do I log in to my Google Apps for Education account?
Go to http://g.clemson.edu to access your Google Apps for Education email account.

What if I forgot my password or my default password isn't working?
Log in to the Email Control Panel with your university username and password. Click "Reset my Google Apps password" and follow all of the instructions on the next screen.

How do I change my Google Apps for Education password?
Your Google Apps for Education password should NOT be identical to your Clemson password. This is because the Google Apps account is hosted by Google, not Clemson University. Password changes on Google will not change your password on the Clemson network and vice versa. You can change your password within your account settings. Resetting your Google Apps  password   will   NOT  change  your   Clemson   UserID  password.  For  detailed instructions, please see Google's password reset walkthrough.

How do I transfer the Clemson course credits to my home institution?
Please contact your home institution for instructions on how to transfer credits. Ideally this should be done before the course begins, as it is possible that a particular home institution may not give a course the kind of credit that a student expects. Typically the home institution wants to see a sample syllabus. Upon completion of the course, the home institution will then want an official transcript. Information on ordering an official Clemson transcript can be found on this page: http://www.registrar.clemson.edu/html/transcript.htm

What are the dates of the summer sessions for 2017?
Summer Session I runs from May 16 - June 22 and Summer II runs from June 27 - August 6. You can find a listing of which courses are offered in each session, as well as sample syllabi, on the course syllabi page.
