Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission is competitive and based on a combination of high school rank in class and SAT scores. Engineering applicants should include the following in their high school program: Mathematics: four units, including Geometry, Trigonometry, and introductory Calculus; Laboratory Science: at least three units, including both Chemistry and Physics; and Computer Science: at least one unit, including introduction to a programming language.

Applicants should have good keyboarding skills.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Freshman engineering students enter the General Engineering Program, a common first-year for all engineering students. After successful(C or better) completion of the freshman engineering curriculum, students may then declare an engineering major.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Admission services for undergraduate international students are provided by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. International students who come from abroad or transfer from another school must meet academic, language, and financial qualifications as determined by Clemson University. The SAT I or ACT is required of all international applicants (freshman or transfer). The Test of English as a Foreign Language(TOEFL) is required of applicants where English is not the native language. Financial qualifications are determined by the submission of financial assessment and bank statements verifying adequate funding. The Office of International Affairs provides visa enabling documents and advising services.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as for all freshman and transfer students.

Residency Requirements

Any student whose status concerning entitlement to payment of in-state tuition and fees is uncertain has the responsibility of securing a ruling from the University by providing all relevant information on special application forms, which can be obtained from the Student Financial Aid Office, G-01 Sikes Hall. These forms are to be completed and returned to that office prior to the first day of class for any semester or summer term for which the student is attempting to qualify for payment of the in-state tuition and fee rate.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Candidates generally should have completed 30 semester or 45 quarter hours of transferable credit and earned a cumulative average minimum of 2.5 (3.0 preferred).

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

Dual Degrees

Graduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

If a student simultaneously pursues two master's degrees, one-sixth (1/6) of the total graded course work may be used toward both degrees. The Graduate Degree Curriculum (form GS2) must clearly denote that the student is working toward two degrees and identify the courses that are being applied to both programs. Committee members, department chair and dean of both graduate programs must approve the two GS2 forms.
