  • Billing Information
    • Student bills are available exclusively online through iROAR. Students can login using their userid and password. Authorized users can also access the student bill using their unique userid and password. The online bill reflects the student’s current registration and billing information. Because the bill is real-time, students can verify that all fees are satisfied before the payment deadlines.
    • Students can add a parent as an authorized user via TouchNet. Students can click on the "Authorized users" tab via TouchNet, enter their parent's email address, and an email with login instructions will then be sent to the parent. Authorized users can view the bill, make a tuition payment and signup for a payment plan. Authorized users cannot enroll for eRefund. Authorized users have a unique login to iROAR.
    • If you cannot access your bill online, please call 864-656-5592 or email us at studentbillingquestions@clemson.edu
    • If your fees change for any reason after your initial payment is made (i.e. housing adjustment, meal plan addition, change in schedule, etc.), it is the student’s responsibility to ensure prompt payment of the balance is made. Login to iROAR to view your current charges and payment status.
    • A $150 late registration fee is charged for paying and/or registering after the published dates for Summer sessions. The late registration fee is non-refundable.

    Credit Card: You may 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.)

    International Wire Transfers
    : Students can send international payments to Clemson through Flywire, which allows you to pay from almost any country and any bank, save on bank fees and exchange rates, and track your payment from start to finish. More detailed instructions may be found by selecting the following: International Wire Instructions.

    529 College Savings Plan: Payments that are submitted by 529 savings plans should be mailed directly to the University at:

    Clemson University
    Student Financial Services
    G-08 Sikes Hall Box 345307
    Clemson, SC 29634

    Be sure to contact your 529 plan's administrator as they will provide you with instructions on how to authorize a withdrawal from your 529 College Savings Plan. Keep in mind that processing these payments takes a varying amount of time, depending on the financial institution. Please do not delay requesting funds from your plan, to avoid a late fee on your account.

    Payment Plans are available for fall and spring semesters. There are no payment plans available for summer sessions.

    TigerStripe cannot be used to pay tuition and fees.

    Cash: Due to increasing security concerns, the Student Financial Services Office will no longer accept cash as a form of payment for tuition. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we do not want to jeopardize the safety of students/employees carrying cash on campus.

    Mail: Checks and money orders can be mailed to: (be sure to include the student ID#) Clemson University

    Prepaid Programs

    SCTPP Account owner will need to submit a copy of their South Carolina Tuition Prepayment Program (SCTPP) card to Student Financial Services (SFS).  Once the SCTPP account has been verified by SFS, credit will be extended in the “anticipated payment amount” on behalf of your plan administrator.  The credit will be itemized on the student bill and include the terminology “SC Prepaid Billing”.  Please note: SCTPP will not cover fees that are not accessed to ALL Clemson students (i.e. lab fees, library fee, CBBS course/major fee and/or optional fees).

    Other state prepaid plans (not including 529 College Savings Plans)- Account owner must contact their plan administrator to begin the process. Once the account owner has completed all required documentation with their plan administrator, the prepaid program will send Clemson a third party billing authorization letter.  Based upon how your prepaid program calculates your tuition payment (i.e. per credit hour, restricted, unrestricted), credit will be extended in the “anticipated payment amount” on behalf of your plan administrator.  The credit will be itemized on the student bill and include the terminology “Prepaid Billing”. 

    Returns

    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 student payments. Student Financial Services will re-present returned items for payment of academic fees. A $30 fee will be charged for each returned item. If a payment is returned or dishonored for any reason, the student's account may be debited electronically for the amount of the check plus the $30 returned item fee.

    If the item is returned to the University in a timely manner with no response from the student or drawer, a written request to disenroll the student will be made to the Registrar. If the request is approved, the percentage of refund will be applied to the debt. If the item is returned after the mid-point of the semester with no response, a decision will be made by the Director of Student Financial Services and the Registrar as to the effect of disenrollment. The University may restrict subsequent payment for academic and other fees by accepting only certified checks and money orders.

    Any individual who uses a two-party check for payment of University expenses will be held responsible for that check if it is returned unpaid by the bank. Items used as payment for various University services (such as meal plans, housing, etc.), that are later returned unpaid by the bank give the University the right to cancel such services and cause forfeiture of any refund.

    Any returned items not collected by the above procedures may be turned over to a collection agency, the indebtedness reported to a credit bureau and collection fees will be added to the account. Transcripts and diplomas will be withheld pending payment, and the debt may be deducted from state income tax refunds.

    Abuse of check payment privileges may result in the restriction of such privileges for an indefinite period of time based on the frequency and/or dollar amount, as determined by Student Financial Services.

    Returned Checks: A $30 returned check fee will be charged for all returned checks. Returned checks and subsequent fees must be satisfied with a certified check or money order.

    Returned eChecks: A $30 returned eCheck fee will be charged for all returned eChecks due to non-sufficient funds, stop payment, frozen accounts and revoked authorizations. 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.

    The ability to pay via eCheck may be restricted for any student with three or more returned payments or at the discretion of Student Financial Services.

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

  • Payment Plans

    Four Payment Plan

    Clemson University is pleased to offer the optional Four Payment Plan, a convenient method of planning for and paying your tuition and fees for the fall or spring semester. By using direct debits from your checking account (Equity or Saving Accounts cannot be used for payment plan transactions), the Four Payment Plan allows you to pay tuition and fees in up to four monthly installments, rather than paying one lump sum by the published payment deadline. The Four Payment Plan is not a loan; you will not be charged any interest. Your only cost is a non-refundable fee, due at the time of payment plan enrollment.

    Only one active payment plan is allowed per student account

    To enroll in the Clemson University Four Payment Plan, please apply online through iROAR. After iROAR login, click on the "Student Financial Services" tab, and then click on "My Bill".  From there, select payment plans from the menu at top of page.

Automatic draft amounts will not be adjusted within 14 days of the next draft date. Any adjustments made to the student account after the final draft may create a balance due which would need to be paid separately through iRoar.

    Four Payment Plan Terms and Conditions


    Two Payment Plan

    What is the Two Payment Plan? The Two Payment Plan is a 2-payment deferred plan designed for students who are unable to pay their fees in full on the payment due date, whether from a loan application in process or a change in family finances that prevents a student from satisfactorily completing the registration process and simply needs more time within the semester to satisfy his/her fees. Participation in the plan signifies the student’s ability and willingness to pay the outstanding balance within the allotted time.

    How does a student sign up for the Plan? Students wishing to use the Two Payment Plan will sign-up online at http://iroar.clemson.edu. The plan is available the day tuition bills are generated for the semester. Students must sign-up prior to published payment deadlines each semester to avoid any late payment fees and/or course cancellation.

    How much does the plan cost? Students will be assessed a $150 Payment Plan enrollment fee at sign-up. A late billing fee of $150 will be assessed each month if payment is not received by the due date. We encourage students to schedule payments at the time of sign-up to avoid the late fee.

    When are payments due and how are minimum payments determined? When a student enrolls in the plan, the outstanding balance at the time of enrollment will be divided by 2 to determine the minimum monthly payment. Financial Aid or changes in fees may affect monthly payment amounts. Payments are due by the 15th of each month (September 15 and October 15 for fall; February 15 and March 15 for spring) and may be automatically drafted from a checking account. Students may also pay online using an e-check (no service charge) or by Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express (a 2.75% convenience fee applies to all credit/debit card transactions).

    What happens if the student does not make the agreed upon payments? Students not meeting the requirements of the payment plan are subject to:
    · Late payment fees
    · Registration block
    · Student privilege restrictions
    · Payment plan block
    · Transcript hold
    · Collections charges
    · Credit bureau reporting

    Two Payment Plan Terms and Conditions
