Admission Tips:

  • A copy of your unofficial transcripts from each institution of attendance should be attached to and submitted with the online application for admission. Official transcripts are only required of those applicants who are offered admission. This means you should not send your official transcripts at this time. You will be asked for the official transcripts if you are admitted.

    • Upon your admissions, request one (1) official transcript from all previously attended colleges and/or universities. Please request that the registrar's office at each institution provide official transcripts of your academic work in sealed envelope(s) with official signature over seal. Refer to Transcript Request Form – GSTR.

  • If you are currently or have previously been a student at Clemson then you will have a CUID number, which you will be asked to provide. If you are unsure of your number, please leave it blank.

    International applicants to Clemson graduate programs who are non-residents of the US are assigned an NR number. If you already have an NR number, please have it available when you complete the online application, so that you can enter it in the appropriate place. If you do not already have an NR number, you will be provided one when you complete the online application. PLEASE SAVE THIS NUMBER.  YOU WILL NEED IT TO INQUIRE ABOUT YOUR APPLICATION.
