Bridge to Clemson Orientation

Congratulations and welcome to the Bridge to Clemson program!

The Bridge to Clemson program provides a comprehensive orientation for Bridge students in the summer before classes begin. By attending orientation, students will:

  • Gain more information about Tri-County and Bridge program expectations and policies
  • Learn about the programs and services offered through the Bridge program
  • Meet with a faculty advisor and register for fall semester classes
  • Hear from campus resources and offices at Clemson and Tri-County
  • Meet fellow Bridge program classmates and upper-class students

The orientation mailing sent to admitted students provides pertinent information for orientation. Admitted students should expect their orientation mailing by mid-April via USPS mail to the address they listed on their Clemson University application.  Students who deposit after April 1 will receive the orientation mailing staggered after their welcome letter. Below are some of the orientation mailing documents, posted as they become available, for easy review. Check back often for updates.

In addition to your preparations for orientation, continue completing the tasks on the Enrollment Checklist, which was mailed to students upon submitting interest and available on our website under the Incoming Student Information webpage. 

2021-2022 Bridge to Clemson Orientation Components and Registration

As detailed in the Orientation Guide, the 2021-22 Bridge to Clemson virtual orientation has three components:

  1. Online modules (via Blackboard) - no registration required 
  2. A virtual small group session (Tiger Talk- registration required, see below 
  3. A virtual Advising and Registration session - registration required, see below 



Tiger Talk sessions are one of the three components required for orientation. During this session, students will learn more about the resources available to them during the Bridge year and help them get connected to the Clemson and Tri-County campuses. Students will meet other incoming Bridge to Clemson students and our Bridge to Clemson Orientation Ambassadors (OAs). Students will hear about the Bridge to Clemson experience from a student’s perspective. 



The Advising and Registration sessions are one of the three components required for orientation. During this session, students will meet with a Tri-County faculty advisor to be advised for fall semester classes and then will be assisted by a Bridge to Clemson staff member to register for classes. Each Advising and Registration session is approximately three hours.
