Recommended Courses Before Transfering

General Course Recommendations for Dual-education Programs

The courses below comprise a very general list of courses that students may transfer to Clemson University under dual-education agreements. Degree requirements vary by intended engineering major and the courses listed may not apply to all degree programs (majors) at Clemson. Please refer to the specific engineering curriculum and any notes listed below each curriculum in Clemson’s Undergraduate Announcements. A substitution of a required course may be possible if an engineering department at Clemson deems it appropriate and it is approved via Clemson’s approval process.

To ensure timely progress toward graduation and to view the curricular requirements of each engineering degree program, please refer to the current version of the Undergraduate Announcements available on line at: http://www.registrar.clemson.edu/html/catalog.htm.

Note: CU also requires 3 credit hours of Cross-Cultural Awareness and 3 credit hours of Science and Technology in Society. With careful planning those credits may be incorporated into the required general education courses. These courses are subject to change at any time. For more information consult the current University Announcements.

For more information, contact the designated departmental Dual-Education Coordinator at Clemson University.

Recommended Engineering Courses to be Taken Prior to Transfer to Clemson

In order to maintain timely progress toward graduation and enter your chosen engineering major at a more advanced level, we recommend completing these fundamental courses prior to enrolling full time at Clemson. Some courses may be offered in summer school at Clemson. Check the current schedule of classes on line (soc.clemson.edu). Some engineering departments only offer courses on a fall/spring sequence, or one time per year, so the timing of transfer to Clemson should be carefully considered. Your dual-education advisors at your home institution and at Clemson can assist in planning.
