Calhoun Honors College

Student Handbook


Established in 1962, the Calhoun Honors College of Clemson University strives to enrich the educational experience of highly motivated, academically talented students by providing opportunities for scholarship and research not always available to undergraduates. The purpose of Honors is to foster continued intellectual growth, to cultivate a lifelong respect for learning, and to prepare students for lives as leaders and change-agents.


The purpose of this site is to provide honors students with detailed information about the policies and requirements of Calhoun Honors College.

Using various means of communication, the Honors Office will do its best to inform you of policies, procedures, postgraduate fellowships, new honors courses, lectures, cultural events, and just about anything else that will enhance your honors experience. However, as an honors student you bear responsibility for understanding program requirements. The Honors Office cannot be responsible for misinformation about honors policies and requirements provided by persons not associated with the Honors College.

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact the Honors Office in 105 Tillman Hall on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. You can phone us at (864) 656-4762 or email us at
