2019-20 bridge to clemson program
bridge students enroll at tri-county for their first year and start their course work in the fall semester. to be admitted to clemson for the subsequent fall semester, bridge students are required to earn a minimum of 30 transferable credit hours and a 2.5 grade point average (gpa) during their freshman year at tri-county. (course credits and gpa must be earned at tri-county after high school graduation.) students who satisfy bridge academic requirements will be admitted to clemson for the subsequent fall semester without being required to resubmit a clemson admission application. students who do not satisfy the bridge academic requirements will be encouraged to apply for admission to clemson at a later date as a transfer applicant.
while grades earned at tri-county will not subsequently be included in a student's clemson grade point ratio (gpr), the grades and credit hours a student earns at tri-county will count toward determining the student's eligibility for the south carolina life scholarship.
community living is one of the most important experiences for a first-year college student. bridge students live in four-person apartments on campus at clemson in either lightsey bridge i, lightsey bridge ii or calhoun courts. upper-class resident assistants coordinate social and academic programs and are available to assist students throughout the year.
