Prospective Freshmen

The School of Nursing at Clemson University offers students the opportunity to engage with top-tier faculty as they progress through a rigorous curriculum designed to prepare them for success in the nursing field. With limited space, nursing is often one of the most competitive majors for entry at Clemson University. The program is direct admission, meaning there is no re-application process for progression to the upper level nursing courses for those students who are admitted as freshmen.

Generally, admissions considers three criteria:

  • High school class rank
  • High school GPA
  • SAT or ACT scores
  • General Campus Visitation Information

    Clemson University provides general campus tours through the Class of 1944 Visitor's Center. Additional information can be found using the links below. 

  • School of Nursing Visitation Information

    Due to the high volume of individual requests, the School of Nursing hosts group sessions to provide information for prospective students about the program. Led by nursing advisors, group sessions include information about the admissions process and program curriculum. Space is limited, and advanced reservation is required. Participation in group sessions in no way influences admission’s decisions.

    The School of Nursing traditionally hosts information sessions during the fall and spring semesters. As a result of the COVID-19, access to academic buildings is currently restricted and the advising office is operating virtually. On-campus visits are suspended until further notice. The School of Nursing will have virtual information sessions during the fall 2021 semester. To access the virtual information sign-ups please proceed to the Visitor Center's website.

    For any questions not answered here, please contact one of the School of Nursing academic advisors:

  • Nursing Program Expansion

    In collaboration with Prisma Health-Upstate, Clemson University has expanded its nursing program in the Clemson University Nursing building in Greenville – an effort that has more than doubled enrollment in Clemson’s traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, and is helping meet the growing need for nurses and bolstering health innovation and research efforts in upstate South Carolina. The collaboration has also expanded student clinical placements within Prisma Health-Upstate.

    With this program expansion, the School of Nursing is targeting an incoming freshman class of approximately 175 students. Entering freshmen have the opportunity to be part of one of two cohorts – a Clemson-based traditional cohort or a Greenville-based accelerated cohort – beginning once students reach their clinical courses. Transportation is provided between the two sites of instruction.

    Outstanding high school seniors applying for admission to Clemson can also apply for membership in the Clemson University Honors College. For priority notification by February 15 as well as consideration for the National Scholars Program, applicants must submit their honors application online by December 1, and all supporting documents must be submitted by December 15. Please note that all applicants to the honors college must first submit the undergraduate admissions application.
