Official transcripts are only required of those applicants who are offered admission. Therefore, upon receiving official notice of acceptance to the Graduate School, you should request official transcripts from the institutions where you completed your previous academic work. Transcripts are considered official only if they are received by the Graduate Admissions Office in a sealed university envelope.
Domestic and Permanent Resident Applicants
In order to ensure that your official transcripts are matched up properly with your application, it is required to APPLY first and then following notification of acceptance request your transcripts from your previous academic work.
Applicants to Graduate Programs must hold a four-year Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) or a Master's Degree from an institution whose scholastic rating is satisfactory to Clemson University. If you are uncertain whether an institution from which you received a degree is a qualifying institution, you are encouraged to consult with the program to which you intend to apply. Contact information for the various programs can be found here.
