Tuition and Financial Aid

Clemson University provides quality graduate education in an environment free of unnecessary expenses and program fees. Tuition and fees are set by the Board of Trustees during their July meeting for the upcoming academic year. The MPAcc program is currently a Tier 2 program but will move to a Tier 1 program for the 2022-2023 academic year. See detailed tuition and fee information on the Graduate School website. The academic tuition and fees for 2020-2021 were approximately $16,000 for the 30 credit-hour program for a full-time in-state student and $32,000 for the 30 credit-hour program for a full-time out-of-state student. All tuition and fees are subject to change at the discretion of the University.

The Office of Residency Classification assists graduate and undergraduate students with applications for entitlement to pay in-state rates on tuition and fees. Additional information on residency classification can be found on the Residency Classification website. If you have questions about your residency classification, we strongly encourage you to contact the Office of Residency Classification at 864-656-2280 or finaid@clemson.edu.

A number of financial aid opportunities are available for students in the Master of Accountancy program, including:

Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistants must enroll as full-time students and will provide 10 hours of service per week for the School of Accountancy. Graduate assistantships provide a stipend of $10 per hour (approximately $4,800 over 12 months) and a partial tuition waiver. Assistantships are competitively awarded. Awards are based in large part on the applicant's overall GPA, upper-level accounting GPA and leadership activities.

Departmental Scholarships and Fellowships

Fellowships are monetary awards that require no service or work from the student. Fellowship recipients are granted the in-state rate for tuition and fees.

Merit fellowships are competitively awarded. Awards are based in large part on the applicant's overall GPA, upper-level accounting GPA and leadership activities.

New for Spring 2022! The Clemson University MPAcc Program is excited to announce the creation of the School of Accountancy's Fellowships for Underrepresented Students. The purpose of these fellowships is to enhance diversity on campus by providing competitive awards to outstanding full-time MPAcc students from underrepresented populations including Black or African American; Hispanic or Latino; and Native American or Alaska Native races. These competitive fellowships will be awarded based on a holistic review of each applicant, to include quantitative factors such as overall and upper-division accounting GPAs, as well as qualitative factors such as leadership activities, volunteer positions, jobs, participation in clubs and/or sports teams and any other activities or positions held during the applicant's undergraduate career.

Applying for Departmental Financial Assistance

To apply for departmental financial assistance, simply check the appropriate boxes on the Program Application. Additionally, students who wish to apply for the underrepresented student fellowships must complete this simple questionnaire.

To be considered for fellowships and assistantships, students must have a completed application and questionnaire (if applying for the underrepresented student fellowship) by September 30 for Spring admissions and December 31 for fall admissions.

The number of fellowships and assistantships is limited.
