Employees can apply for TSA PreCheck screening, avoid long airport lines

Clemson University employees and their families are eligible for an expedited screening program that enables identified low-risk air travelers to enjoy a more efficient security screening experience at the airport. If approved, there is no need to remove shoes, 3-1-1 liquids, laptops, light outerwear or belts in TSA screening lines.

Through the Clemson University Athletic Department’s partnership with Anthony Travel, it is working with a company that will conduct TSA PreCheck enrollment screenings on campus at the McFadden Building.

The program costs $85 per person and is valid for five years.

The on-site screening appointments will be available from 8 a.m.-noon and 1-5 p.m. Oct. 17-21. The typical appointment lasts five-seven minutes as long as the online registration information is completed correctly.

To enroll and schedule your appointment, simply follow the link below and select “Apply Now.” The location code is SP-Clemson, and you must select Clemson, SC from the search results.

Important notes:

  • Signups are first-come, first-served. Please register early to ensure your desired date and time is available.
  • Each individual 13 years of age and older needs to complete a separate application and book a separate time slot. Children under the age of 13 do not need a PreCheck number.
  • The application fee is $85 per person and can be paid by credit card, money order, company check or certified/cashier’s check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted. This is a personal expense that will not be paid for or reimbursed by Clemson University.
  • Remember to check the list of required documents.

The TSA PreCheck application program allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to directly apply for  a “Known Traveler Number” (which can be added to a traveler’s airline profile and reservations). Known travelers will have the opportunity to use TSA PreCheck lanes at select security checkpoints when flying on the 16 carriers that currently participate in TSA PreCheck, including Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Allegiant, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Hawaiian Airlines, JetBlue Airways, OneJet, Southwest Airlines, Sun Country Airlines, United Airlines, Virgin America and WestJet.
