Clemson University Student Veterans Association

Clemson has a student organization just for veteran students. This group is an excellent resource for meeting other veterans and connecting with students on campus. They meet periodically through the year and enjoy reaching out to other veterans. 


Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) Detachments


Army ROTC is one of the best leadership courses in the country and is part of Clemson’s college curriculum. During classes, leadership labs, physical training and field training exercises, students learn firsthand what it takes to lead others, motivate groups and conduct missions as an Officer in the Army. Upon graduation from Army ROTC, Cadets will earn the bar of a Second Lieutenant and be commissioned into the Active Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard and become a leader for life. The program is open to current students, transfer students, prior service military members and current Army Reserve and Army National Guard Soldiers all attending Clemson or one of our partnership schools.

Clemson’s Army ROTC has a proud heritage reflected in “The Military Heritage Plaza” and “Scroll of Honor” both dedicated to honor the University's history as a military institution and to honor Clemson alumni who have served the United States in times of war.

Air Force ROTC

With the National Security Act of 1947 establishing the Department of the Air Force, Clemson’s Air Force ROTC Detachment was first created, beginning a long tradition of producing the finest officers for the world’s greatest Air Force. Today, Detachment 770 has proven itself year after year as one of the nation’s top medium-size AFROTC detachments in both the Southeast region and in South Carolina as noted by several prestigious awards: Right of Line, High Flight and Best in State. Furthermore, Detachment 770 is nationally recognized for its dedication to generating quality leaders for the U.S. Air Force. On average, they commission 16–20 second lieutenants and more than 80 percent who apply for rated positions (pilot, Navigator) receive them.

Clemson Corps

The Clemson Corps is a constituency group of military veterans and friends dedicated to continuing Clemson's military heritage and developing other opportunities to commemorate the military history of Clemson University. In addition, it aims to support Clemson University's Army and Air Force ROTC programs through annual scholarship support and endowment. The Clemson Corps provided the guiding force and dedication that established the Scroll of Honor, Military Heritage Plaza and Memorial Park. The Clemson Corps also assists the athletic department in conducting the Military Appreciation Day events during a football, basketball and baseball season. We can think of no better calling than to bring to Clemson outstanding young men and women who will be the military leaders of tomorrow.
