Clemson University’s current international agreements largely fall into the following three types of agreements:
- Memoranda of Understanding which indicate a general interest in collaboration within often still undetermined areas of activity. Such MOU usually precede a more detailed exchange or activity agreement.
- Student Exchange Agreements in which two or more institutions agree to a reciprocal exchange of students for semester or year-long study.
- Activity Agreements that articulate the details of specific areas and activities of collaboration among the parties. These include articulation agreements that allow students to complete a program of study at Clemson that they began elsewhere; agreements to host visiting scholars and/or interns; faculty exchanges; agreements to offer training/degree programs abroad; and, many other possibilities.
Global Partnerships and Initiatives maintains a database of the university’s international agreements and manages the process of administrative review of these agreements. We welcome you to view all of our existing international partnerships at the Clemson University Global Activity Database.
