To continue our commitment to excellence in undergraduate education, Clemson University admits a select group of talented students to Tigertown Summer Bound (TTSB). TTSB at Clemson provides students with the opportunity to enroll and make progress toward graduation by completing a challenging academic experience the summer before their freshman 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 allows admitted students to begin their Clemson education prior to their freshman year by completing two courses towards graduation during Summer II term. Courses will be selected in consultation between students and academic program staff at a TTSB information session. 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.
Community living is one of the most important experiences for a first-year college student. TTSB students will live in Douthit Hills during Summer II term. Summer Program Ambassadors will reside in the residence hall and provide academic support outside of class. Instructions on how to register for summer housing can be found in Next Steps. Douthit Hills is the newest residential area on campus. More information can be found at http://housing.clemson.edu.
