Embraced in the mission of the Athletic Department are the following principles:
Student-Athlete Code of ConductAs a valued member of the Clemson Athletics Department, I will use my talents to attain a quality education and earn a degree. Although time commitments are demanding during my athletic season, I will remain academically eligible, attend class, inform professors of unexpected absences due to official athletic events, maintain academic honesty, and make maximum use of Vickery Hall and its programs.
As a member of Clemson’s Athletics family, I will represent with integrity the values and traditions of Clemson University. I will support and respect all fellow students and student athletes alike. Because the Tiger Paw is about Pride, I will display good sportsmanship, know and follow NCAA and ACC guidelines, obey team rules and policies, and always give 100 percent effort to represent Clemson University in a positive manner in practice and competition, in the classroom, and in my daily life.(Written and adopted by SAAB 2003)
