By clicking below, you acknowledge that these estimates do not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance or a final net price. They are only estimates based on cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in 2014-15. Cost of attendance and financial aid availability change year to year. Your need-based aid estimate is based on the needs analysis formula from 2014-15, but is still an accurate estimate of what you can expect from Clemson for the upcoming year. These estimates shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, Clemson University, or the State of South Carolina.
The estimates provided apply to
full-time, first-time undergraduate students
only. If you enroll for less than a full-time schedule, or are transferring to Clemson, these amounts may differ. In addition, all FAFSA applicants will be considered for all federal loan and work programs.
Not all students receive financial aid. In 2014-15, 87% of our full-time students enrolling for college for the first time received grant/scholarship aid. Students may also be eligible for student loans and work-study. In order for students to be eligible for federal and state need-based aid, they must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by our priority deadline of March 1st, and submit any necessary follow-up documents promptly.
