Tuition and Fee Regulations

Semester fees are payable on or before registration payment deadlines as published for each semester. A student’s registration process is not complete until payment is made in full. It is the student's responsibility to see that his or her tuition and fees are paid even if the funds are provided by financial aid, scholarship, or some other source.

Checks should be made payable to Clayton State University for the exact amount of the required fees. During the normal registration period, the University accepts payment online or in person by VISA, Discover, and MasterCard subject to validation and approval. (Payment of fees may not be deferred). All fees are due and payable per deadlines published in the Schedule of Classes.

Note: We are unable to accept personal checks during late registration and the schedule adjustment period.
