Clemson University

Your housing priority depends on the date you send in your admissions application! A student MUST take the Writing portion of the ACT at least once for them to use ACT scores for admission purposes. Admission decisions DO DEPEND on stated MAJOR choice! Always list two diverse majors on your application. Do not wait for better SAT/ACT scores; send now. Admissions will update your application with better scores when sent. Clemson will take the highest SAT Reading and Math, even from different testing dates. If applying for either Honors College, there is an additional application. If applying to the Bridge program, there is not a separate application. If a Bridge student earns at least thirty hours and has at least a 2.5 GPA at the end of the college freshman year, the student does not have to reapply to Clemson for the sophomore year. If you plan to apply to the College of Agriculture, Forestry, and Life Sciences or the College of Engineering and Science, request one of the special tours that are given on Fridays for these areas. Clemson automatically reviews all appointments for possible scholarships given by the university. There are only a few obscure scholarships listed online that a student would need to separately apply.

University of South Carolina


To apply for the Honors College, a student would need a letter of recommendation from the High School Counselor and two additional letters from others. USC makes major-blind admission decisions. If a student feels that he/she would be on the admissions bubble, an essay with additional information or of explanation will be helpful. Spring-only acceptance offers will come out in the spring. students applying here are automatically reviewed for USC scholarships, but some require separate applications! check their website to see which are which.
