Graduate Resources for Satisfactory Academic Progress


Speak regularly with your professors and advisers. Attend their office hours and, if possible, create a mentorship relationship with a professor, adviser, staff or faculty member in your department. Every member of our campus community wants to do their best to help you succeed, and asking for a mentorship relationship is a great way to receive help inside and outside the classroom.

Supervisors/Mentors in Extracurricular Settings

Develop trusting relationships with people who can support your academic journey by helping you balance professional and personal responsibilities. For example, if you are struggling in classes in part because you are working late hours, consider having a conversation with your supervisor. He or she may be willing to work with you to make sure you have the necessary time to study.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

CAPS provides counseling and support services to Clemson University students. You can reach out to them for a wide variety of concerns, including testing anxiety, trouble with transitioning to campus and diagnosed (or suspected) neurodivergence. Walk-in hours for CAPS are 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m.

Student Accessibility Services (SAS)

SAS works with students who have diagnoses or disorders needing testing and classroom accommodations. If you believe you might fall in this category, visit the SAS website to learn more.

Cocurricular and Extracurricular Activities

The Graduate School, the Writing Center and many other offices on campus offer specific programming to help you be successful, like GRAD 360°.
