Undergraduate students in Bioengineering at Clemson University.All undergraduate students, including transfer students, enter the General Engineering program in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. After completing this one-year program with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 and a grade of C or higher in each course, students can transfer into the bioengineering degree program.

Freshman general-engineering applicant admissions are based on 

  • Class standing
  • Standardized SAT or ACT scores
  • High school curriculum
  • Grades

Transfer students must have

  • completed one year of study
  • obtained a cumulative GPA of 3.0/4.0
  • completed all required freshman-level English, science and mathematics courses
