Transfer and Dual-Education

Welcome to Clemson

The College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences (CECAS) enrolls over 400 Transfer Students each year. These students come from two and four-year institutions across the state of South Carolina and across the country. If you plan to transfer into CECAS from your institution, you are highly encouraged to contact the Clemson University Admissions Office at (864) 656-2287.

The Transfer Course Equivalency List (TCEL) can aid you in determining which classes will transfer to Clemson. This listing is NOT all-inclusive but has equivalencies of courses that have been evaluated in the past. Matching the equivalent courses to the specific major you intend to pursue will help you determine how long you should remain at your current school as well as what courses you would enroll in your first semester at Clemson.

There is a lot to consider when transferring:

  • admissions requirements
  • financial aid
  • what courses transfer
  • tuition costs

Transfer Requirements Information by Major

If you haven’t already, you can read about the requirements and how the application process works on Clemson’s Transfer Admissions page. A transfer student going into an engineering major needs 30 hours worth of transferrable college credit and a minimum GPA of 2.7 to be considered for admission. If accepted, they are then admitted to General Engineering (GE). All freshmen and transfer students begin in General Engineering and move into their specified major once the GE departmental standards are completed. Students transferring into Clemson who are interested in Computer Science, Computer Information Systems or Geology can be admitted directly into that department and major.

Dual Education

CECAS has Dual-Education (formerly known as Dual-Degree) programs with several four-year institutions across the Southeast. These colleges and universities include Anderson University, Charleston Southern University, Claflin College, Coastal Carolina University, Converse College, Elon University,  Erskine College, Francis Marion University, Furman University, Lander University, Lenior-Rhyne University, Newberry College, University of North Georgia, North Greenville University, Presbyterian College, and Wofford College.
