Requirements for Completion
Graduates of Greenville Tech’s Associate Degree in Construction Engineering Technology who meet all of the below-listed criteria may apply for transfer to Clemson University and major in the Bachelor of Science in Construction Science and Management Degree Program. The criteria are as follows:
- The student will have received the Associate in Applied Science Degree with a major in Construction Engineering Technology (two-year transfer option) from Greenville Tech.
- The student must complete a Student Agreement (see advisor) and satisfy the current required courses agreed on between Greenville Tech’s CET Department and Clemson’s Construction Science and Management Department.
- The students’ cumulative grade point ratio must be 2.8 or higher. A grade of “C,” or better, is necessary in all courses applied toward a bachelor’s degree.
- The student must achieve the minimum score on the South Carolina Education Entrance Examination and forward the scores to Clemson University.
- Each student at Greenville Tech who intends to follow this program must sign the “Student Transfer Agreement” document before completing 30 credit hours at Greenville Tech. The dean of the School of Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering Technology at Greenville Tech and the dean of the College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities at Clemson University must also sign this agreement.
Graduates are prepared to take the South Carolina General Contractors and the South Carolina Residential Contractors exams. Students must have one year of work experience under a licensed contractor. Students are advised to review eligibility requirements with the LLR.
Construction companies estimating firms, highway departments, builders, architectural/engineering firms
- Graduates may continue their education toward a Bachelor of Science degree at Clemson University in Construction Science and Management by following the GTC/CU articulation agreement.
- Graduates may also continue their education at four-year institutions offering Bachelor of Engineering Technology programs. Students interested in transferring should take University Transfer courses and meet with their advisor for assistance.
