Information for Accepted Students

After you have applied to Clemson

The status of your application for graduate study submitted through the Clemson University Graduate School can be checked online.

Status: Accepted — This means you qualify for admission to the program. You will not officially be admitted to the graduate program until all final and official transcripts and test scores are received.

If you are accepted

Assistantship Decisions — After students are admitted, the Physics and Astronomy Department makes all assistantship decisions. The Graduate School cannot tell you more about that status. It will typically take two more weeks before you receive official notification of an assistantship offer or if you are on the waiting list for an offer. If you are offered an assistantship, you must sign the letter and return it to accept the offer. All offers remain valid until April 15 (for admission to the Fall semester) or Nov 30 (for Spring admission), after which they may be offered to other applicants. Of course, if you do not plan to accept our offer, please inform us as soon as possible so we may offer the position to another candidate.

Note that Fall classes begin in mid-August, and orientation for teaching assistants begins the first week of August. You should plan to arrive in Clemson by the first day of orientation if you will be a teaching assistant for Fall. (For the schedule for Spring admissions, please contact the department.)
