Admission to Claflin University

At Claflin, you are our primary focus. We are committed to educating men and women of vision with global perspectives. You will be a part of a community of learners who want you to succeed, both academically and personally. You’ll meet new people who share your interests and viewpoints, and experience new ideals. You will join clubs, participate in sports, and enjoy concerts and theater productions. Your studies will begin in the classroom, but hands-on research, real-life work settings, valuable internships and perhaps trips abroad won’t be far behind. Most of all, you will learn the Claflin confidence, and after graduation, you will be ready to become a leader in the world beyond campus. At Claflin, we believe that the world needs visionaries, and your experience here will prepare you to be instrumental in solving the world’s most pressing problems. 

Come for a visit and we’ll show you more about what it means to be a part of this visionary experience. We schedule weekly tours to prospective students and families.
