What you need to Know About Clemson University

Set in a college town with a beautiful backdrop of lakeshore and mountains, Clemson University attracts students looking for a rigorous academic experience, world-class research opportunities, a strong sense of community and a vibrant school spirit. We invite you to pursue greatness here.

One of the country’s most selective public research universities, Clemson was founded in 1889 with a mission to be a “high seminary of learning” dedicated to teaching, research and service. Today, these three concepts remain at the heart of the University and provide the framework for an exceptional educational experience.

At Clemson, professors take the time to get to know students and explore innovative ways of teaching. Exceptional teaching is one reason our retention and graduation rates rank among the highest in the country for public universities.

Exceptional teaching is also why Clemson continues to attract an increasingly talented student body.

In 2018, more than half of the entering freshmen were ranked in the top 10 percent of their high school classes, and the freshman class averaged 1308 on the critical reading and math sections of the SAT.

The University is committed to the success of its students. For the fall 2017 class, Clemson’s student retention rate was 93 percent. Much of this is due to the Academic Success Center (ASC), which is recognized nationally and internationally for its programs in collegiate learning.

The ASC is housed in a 35,000-square-foot facility where it offers free one-on-one tutoring services for more than 80 courses as well as for additional courses as the need arises. Peer-Assisted Learning, academic skills workshops, and academic coaching are also available free to all Clemson students.

Clemson has also received national recognition for its innovative Communication Across the Curriculum (CAC) program, which makes writing across all curriculums a priority.

At Clemson, CAC has become a standard teaching method used in nearly every department to provide real-life challenges that require students to think and communicate effectively.

From cheering on the Tigers at a football game to socializing at the Hendrix Student Center, Clemson students can participate in a wide variety of activities outside the classroom. The more than 500 campus clubs and organizations include fraternities and sororities, as well as honorary, international, military, performing arts, political, professional, religious, service, social interest, special interest, sports and fitness, and student media.

With 19 intercollegiate sports, Clemson offers exciting spectator sports year-round. Clemson is a charter member of the Atlantic Coast Conference and is an NCAA Division I school. Admission to regular-season home events is included in University fees for full-time students.

What you Must Know About the Application Process

In 2018, the University received about 28,884 applications for a fall freshman class of 3,796.

For freshman applicants, the following factors are considered: class standing, standardized test scores (SAT or ACT), high school curriculum, grades and choice of major.

All entering freshmen must have completed 4 credits of English, 3 credits of mathematics, 3 credits of laboratory science, 3 credits of a foreign language (in the same language), 3 credits of social sciences, 1 credit of U.S. history, 1 credit of physical education or ROTC, and 1 credit of fine arts.

To be considered for transfer admission, candidates must have completed a full year of college study (a minimum of 30 semester hours or 45 quarter hours of transferable work), earned a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (3.0 preferred) and completed freshman-level courses in English, science, and mathematics for their intended major at Clemson.

Application deadlines for freshman admission are December 1 (priority date for fall semester), May 1 (fall semester) and December 15 (spring semester). For transfer admissions, the application deadlines are July 1 (fall semester) and December 15 (spring semester).

Incoming Freshmen

Follow these Procedures

When applying, freshman applicants should:

  • Fill out the online application.
  • Send an official high school transcript with senior year courses listed.
  • Request official SAT or ACT scores to be sent directly from the testing agency. If you submit old SAT scores (from tests administered before March 2016), Clemson will convert the old SAT decision scores (critical reading/math/writing) into new SAT sections (evidence-based reading and writing/math). The overall total SAT score will then be derived by taking the highest of the evidence-based reading and writing/math scores. For your ACT scores, the best composite score will be taken.

Other application considerations:

  • An audition is required for students interested in pursuing music or theater concentrations. For more information, visit the performing arts department website.
  • Applications for PGA Golf Management must demonstrate evidence of a playing proficiency reflected in a handicap of eight or better. Each student’s handicap must be verified by a member of the PGA or by a high school golf coach. For more information, visit the PGA Golf Management website.

Interviews are not required for admission, but you can learn more about the Clemson experience by visiting with an admissions staff member. Appointments are not required, but you can call the office at 864-656-2287 to schedule one if you would like.
