Bridge students enroll at Tri-County Technical College ( TCTC) for their first year and start their course work in the fall semester. To be admitted to Clemson for the subsequent fall semester, Bridge students are required to earn a minimum of 30 transferable credit hours and a 2.5 grade point average (GPA) during their freshman year at TCTC. (Course credits and GPA must be earned at TCTC after high school graduation.) Students who satisfy Bridge academic requirements will be admitted to Clemson for the subsequent fall semester without being required to resubmit a Clemson admission application. Students who do not satisfy the Bridge academic requirements will be encouraged to apply for admission to Clemson at a later date as a transfer applicant.
While grades earned at TCTC will not subsequently be included in a student's Clemson grade point ratio (GPR), the grades and credit hours a student earns at TCTC will count toward determining the student's eligibility for the South Carolina LIFE scholarship.
Community living is one of the most important experiences for a first-year college student. Bridge students live in four-person apartments on campus at Clemson in either Lightsey Bridge I, Lightsey Bridge II, or Calhoun Courts. Upper-class resident advisers coordinate social and academic programs and are available to assist students throughout the year.
