Dual-Degree Program in Engineering

The dual-degree program in engineering is a cooperative program between Francis Marion University and Clemson University. Under this program, a student will spend three years at Francis Marion University in a special pre-engineering curriculum and two years at Clemson University studying an engineering discipline. Upon successful completion of this program, the student will receive a Bachelor of Science degree in an engineering discipline from Clemson University and a Bachelor of Science (or Arts) degree in an appropriate field from Francis Marion University.

Admission to Clemson University is guaranteed for students who earn a C or better in all courses in the dual-degree curriculum and have a grade point average of 2.5 or better at Francis Marion University.

During the first three years at Francis Marion University, a student participating in the dual-degree program must complete a form entitled, “Intention to Persue the Dual-Degree Program at Clemson University,” and send it to the Associate Dean of Engineering in the College of Engineering at Clemson University. Formal application for admission to Clemson University should be made during the Fall semester of the third year at Francis Marion University.
