Payment Options

The Clayton State University Film and Digital Media Center, which is part of the Center for Continuing and Professional Education, does not offer degree-seeking credit. Therefore, we are unable to process traditional forms of financial aid such as the HOPE Grant or Scholarships, the Pell Grant, etc.  

You do not need to complete a FAFSA form for programs in the Film and Digital Media Center.

However, many students have found financial assistance via the following:
