Article by Media Relations

CLEMSON — Clemson University trustees approved the university’s budget of $859.8 million for fiscal year 2012-13, heard a report on fall enrollment and approved several program modifications at its quarterly meeting on campus Thursday.

Provost Dori Helms said both graduate and undergraduate applications were up this year. The university received the largest number of freshman applications in the school’s history: 18,500. As a result, the incoming class could be about 200 more students than anticipated.

She said once again it will be the school’s highest-quality freshman class, with an average 1245 SAT score. Reports show 52 percent of the incoming students were in the top 10 percent of their high school classes and 97 percent were in the top half of their classes.

In action related to academic programs, the trustees approved several changes in future locations:

  • MBA programs, MS Marketing and MS Management from Clemson at the Falls to Greenville One in downtown Greenville
  • Master of Professional Accountancy from University Center of Greenville to Clemson at the Falls for a move to Greenville One
  • Master of Real Estate Development from main campus to Greenville One

The trustees also approved a new certificate in Athletic Leadership in Education for online delivery and graduate students.

Three programs were terminated: South Carolina Institute for Energy Studies (SCIES), the concentration in gerontology nurse practitioner and the Mayor’s Institute/Design Arts Partnership.

Approved program name changes were:

  • Center for Professional Advancement and Continuing Education (PACE) to Clemson University’s Center for Corporate Learning
  • School of Materials Science and Engineering to the department of materials science and engineering
  • School of Planning, Development and Preservation and Landscape Architecture to department of planning, development and preservation and department of landscape architecture

In action related to facilities, the trustees approved the concept plan for renovation to McAdams Hall, gave final approval to wastewater treatment plant upgrades and approved an upfit of space at Greenville One building, subject to required state approvals.

Recognizing one of their own, the trustees publicly honored Thomas McTeer of Columbia, who has been named a trustee emeritus after serving nearly 36 years on the board.
