Tigertown Summer Bound Program at Clemson University
To prioritize the safety of our students, the Tigertown Summer Bound program will take place online this summer. We have modified our program with the goal of students completing the six credit hours online that will fulfill graduation requirements. Tigertown Summer Bound staff have been creating a plan of delivery to best support students in this modified format. Staff will continue to update this plan and send more detailed information to students and families in the coming weeks.
To continue our commitment to excellence in undergraduate education, Clemson University admits a select group of talented students to Tigertown Summer Bound (TTSB). TTSB provides students with the opportunity to enroll and make progress toward graduation by completing a challenging academic experience the summer before their first-year. TTSB students begin their Clemson education by completing two courses and CU 1000 credit towards graduation during Summer II term, after which students transition into fall term to continue their first-year. TTSB also provides individualized student support services, dedicated academic support, and the opportunity to develop relationships with peers, faculty, and staff mentors through fun and engaging activities. TTSB is designed to support students in meeting the University’s academic requirements as they embark on their Clemson journey.
TTSB instructors support the program mission by providing guidance and mentorship inside and outside of the classroom and by communicating student course performance to program staff. Evidence has shown that the support services and educational tools provided during TTSB will empower students to realize their academic and personal goals at Clemson and beyond. Summer II term TTSB courses will be assigned based on AP/IB/dual enrollment and transfer credits, major, and course setup. See the FAQ for more information.
Students who have been invited to Tigertown Summer Bound are highly recommended to attend a Tigertown Summer Bound Interest Session to learn more about the program. A recorded Interest Session has been made available to all TTSB students. Students can view the Virtual Interest Session via a Box Drive.
