Once again, freeze on Clemson U. tuition

The financial and emotional stress impact created by the coronavirus on Clemson undergraduate students and their families led the university board of trustees today to freeze tuition and fees for the 2021-22 year.  The freeze applies for all-in-state and out-of-state undergraduate students.  Jim Clements, the Clemson president, credited philanthropic donors, the General Assembly, along with relief funds from the “CARES” Act for the university’s sound financial position.  However, housing and dining fees were increased by three percent to cover increased costs associated with inflation and the need to pay for planned repairs and renovations.  Graduate tuition increases are to be held to three percent as part of a plan to incrementally raise rates to expand graduate school offerings.
