Average Test Scores

These are the 2018 average test scores for admitted Clemson University graduate students, by program. These scores should serve as a gauge only. They are not cut-off scores, nor do all applicants with these scores or higher necessarily receive an offer of admission, as a holistic approach is taken when making admissions decisions.
