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 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.

Interest Sessions 

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. Interest Sessions will take place virtually through Zoom. Students and families will receive more specific information on dates and registration in the Spring semester. 

If you are unable to attend a live Interest Session, a recorded session will be made available to all students and families through the TTSB Box Drive. First-Year Academic Programs staff will also offer opportunities for individual meetings with students and families to answer more specific questions. Visit Interest Sessions on our website for more information.
