It can be a bit scary to look at the total projected cost of a college education over the course of a multi-year degree, however, doing so will help you better understand the financial commitment you are making.

The overall cost for on-campus, in-state students to attend Clayton State University in 2020 - 2021 was $21,321. To calculate future costs, we looked at the prior five years of data and determined that this cost increased an average of 1.2% each year.

If this trend continues, we expect the full cost for incoming freshmen to be $21,840 during their first year. By their senior year, that cost will be approximately $22,643, for a bachelor degree candidate ($22,104 for an associate degree candidate) for a total of $88,959 over the course of four years ($43,944 over the course of two years). These numbers do not take into consideration financial aid, which reduces this overall cost by varying amounts per student.

The cost for out-of-state students is more, with an overall expected four-year cost of $131,756 based on a yearly growth rate of 0.8%. The expected two-year cost is $65,360.
