For closed majors, students should pay particular attention to the change of major policies as outlined at this link regarding how students will earn a space in the program after crossing the Bridge to Clemson and the requirements for consideration of admission. Note the following:
- Changing your major at Tri-County Technical College in no way affects your major being changed officially at Clemson University.
- Often times, graduation in closed majors at Clemson is delayed: education is usually an extra year if chosen; nursing is an extra semester if chosen; and health science varies depending on internship space available if chosen.
- There is no guarantee of admission to any closed major at Clemson. There are always more applicants than we have spaces for in all closed majors at Clemson.
- Students are required to investigate an alternate major plan that will lead to their career goals should they not be able to be admitted to a closed major.
- Changing majors into an open education major to gain access to a closed education major is not recommended. The curriculum is very different and courses, even within education, carry different restrictions for each program. Note that pursuing one of the open education majors is encouraged if it is a legitimate option for a career.
