**We are experiencing very high call volume at this time, with occasional outages of service in our call routing system. If your call is dropped, please be assured that we did not hang up on you. If you get a busy signal, our phones are not off the hook. We regret that our holding time is limited to 30 minutes, so we encourage you to call again or visit G01 Sikes Hall. Before you call, please make sure you (or your student) have read and acted upon any emails sent from “Clemson Financial Aid Office.” Please login to iROAR and look for any missing requirements, such as Entrance Loan Counseling, Master Promissory Note, Palmetto Fellows Designation Form, SC Affidavit, or Verification documents. These can be viewed in iROAR at the Financial Aid Tab in the Eligibility Box under Student Requirements. In addition, you need to accept the Terms and Conditions for your financial aid which can be viewed and accepted at the Financial Aid Tab in the Award Box under Terms and Conditions (the fourth tab over). If you have missing requirements, or satisfied them recently, your aid will likely not be ready to pay your bill on time. To avoid class cancellation, we encourage you to enroll in a payment plan.**
*Beginning Monday, May 15, two-factor authentication will be required to access iROAR. Two-factor authentication asks individuals for a secondary confirmation of their identity at log in using a physical device, such as an app or text message on your phone. Clemson University will use Duo Security for two-factor authentication. Please visit 2fa.clemson.edu for more information and to sign up for Duo Security.*
A Clemson University education is an excellent investment in your and/or your child's future. The financial aid staff are here to help you understand the various financial aid programs that are available and to work individually with those who face significant financial difficulties during their career at Clemson. Overall, 87 percent of our students receive some type of financial assistance – which includes state, federal and University awards. Please review this site for information about our merit scholarships, need-based grants, loans and work study. We are committed to providing the highest level of customer service to our students.
For our currently enrolled students, you have several responsibilities as a recipient of financial aid, so please pay attention to the application process, deadlines and policies.
The Clemson University Office of Student Financial Aid exists to help students secure the funds necessary to pursue their educational goals at Clemson University through the administration and implementation of federal, state and institutional programs of financial assistance.
If you have any questions during the process, please be sure to contact our office, and we will help however we can.
The Office of Student Financial Aid will be closed on August 21 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm for the solar eclipse.
2017 Financial Aid Request Form for Summer Enrollment is now available online.
The IRS Data Retrieval Tool, popularly used to complete or correct the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), is currently unavailable at www.fafsa.gov. This impacts both the 2016-17 and 2017-18 filing years. Students and parents are now required to complete the income and taxes questions on the FAFSA manually, but the instructions give detailed line-by-line guidance. We are hopeful that the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Education will offer this service again for 2018-19.
