Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.56 Average Rating
Really cheap considering you have smaller classes, many majors to choose from and the amount of extras that your money pays for that are included
Ty-Quanna from Mcdonough, GA
all types of programs on campus to save students money and for just being a student of clayton discounted perks off campus as well.
Yahara from Covington, GA
The cost is very affordable & reasonable, with the high level of education that you receive.
D TAYLOR from Riverdale, GA
I can trully say that CSU was one of my cheaper choices and the resources are easily accessible and worth more than you can get on any other.
Breanna from Thomson, GA
Clayton State is extremely cheap. Aim for the Hope Scholarship as an extra assistance. But you are able to pay for the tuition with or without small scholarships.
Alexa from Stockbridge, GA
In terms of education and helpfulness yes, you are getting what you paid for. The teachers are there to help, center for academic success, the career service (to help you find a job, even after graduation), campus life (in terms of leadership classes and volunteering opportunities); they are all good places to go to get help and have fun. Especially outdoor adventure that is also through campus life. Outdoor adventure is hiking, skiing, caving; I would honestly say that is the best part.
Nneka from Lithonia, GA
While the fees make up most of the tuition bill, it is still cheap for the quality education you receive.
