Welcome to the Office of College Preparation & Outreach. We have several programs and initiatives at Clemson University that illuminate pathways to college, bridge the opportunity gap, and create a college-going culture for K-12 students in South Carolina and beyond.

About Us

The Office of College Preparation and Outreach was created in 2017 and our mission is to close educational opportunity gaps and expose underrepresented K-12 students to higher education. We do this through three signature programs: Snelsire, Sawyer, & Robinson Clemson Career Workshop, Emerging Scholars and Tiger Alliance. We also host regional student summits around the state throughout the year and offer specialized campus tours for groups of underrepresented students.  Please visit the program websites to learn more.
