SPECTRA is a scholarship program that can help to make completing a Bachelor's degree a more affordable option for Engineering and Computer Science students transferring to Clemson. This opportunity is only offered for students who attend one of the 16 South Carolina Technical Colleges who intend to transfer. This 2-year scholarship can facilitate earning a degree in Engineering or Computer Science at Clemson a reality.

The Student Pathways in Engineering and Computing for Transfers program (SPECTRA) allows students to launch their academic career at Spartanburg Community College, Trident Technical College, or any other Technical College within South Carolina. Participants would then transfer to continue towards earning their Bachelor’s degree at Clemson University. We encourage students to participate in an Associate of Science program prior to transferring to Clemson.
