Tuition & Costs

Investing in your education is how you will make that dream of yours a reality. As you review the tuition and fees, keep in mind that one of the ways Clayton State supports our students’ dreams is through access to financial aid, such as scholarships, loans, and grants. Visit the Bursar’s Office to manage your student accounts for Billing, Tuition & Fee Payments, Refunds, and Financial Aid.

Aid & Scholarships

Students can apply to scholarships based on merit or need. Students entering as freshman, transfer and enrolled continuing students will be automatically considered for all eligible university-administered scholarships. Visit the Office of Financial Aid to apply for financial aid or access our online scholarship database and links to external private scholarships.


After a day of classes are over, there’s nothing better than coming to a place where you can study, socialize, or rest up from the day. Clayton State offers fully furnished residence halls with suite-style rooms to create your personal home away from home.
