Recommended Courses Before Transferring

General Courses for Dual-Education Programs

The courses indicated in the table consist of a general index of courses that students may transfer to Clemson University under dual-education agreements.

  • Degree requirements vary by intended major and classes listed may not apply to all programs.
  • Refer to specific engineering curriculum and any notes listed below course of study in Clemson’s Undergraduate Catalog.
  • Substitution of required course may be possible if department deems it applicable and is approved via Clemson’s approval process.

To ensure timely progress toward graduation and to view the curricular requirements of each engineering degree program, please refer to the current version of the Undergraduate Catalog.

Engineering Courses to Take Before Transfer

To maintain timely progress toward graduation and enter your chosen engineering major at a more senior level, we recommend completing these fundamental courses before enrolling full time at Clemson.

  • Courses may be offered during summer at Clemson - Check schedule online.
  • Some departments offer courses on a fall/spring sequence or one time per year - Time transfer to Clemson carefully.

Your dual-education advisors at both your home institution and Clemson can assist in planning.
