Getting Started

CAAH encourages all of our students to integrate global learning throughout their studies. Early planning is critical, especially for experiences abroad. Read below for how to start the process.

Initial Steps

  1. Attend a Study Abroad 101 session - Learn about program options, financial aid information, how to apply credit earned abroad towards your degree, and get your questions answered!
    Study Abroad 101 sessions are coordinated by the Clemson Abroad Office and take place on Mondays from 3:30-4:30 p.m. and Thursdays from 12:00-1:00 p.m. in E-304 Martin Hall.
  2. Research program options - Utilize the Clemson Abroad website and program search tool to explore study abroad program options.
  3. Meet with CAAH’s Study Abroad Advisor - Discuss your interests and needs to refine options that are best suited to your goals. To schedule an appointment, students should contact Carolyn Crist.
  4. Meet with your academic advisor- Review program choices identified in the meeting with the Study Abroad Advisor. Identify potential classes to take while abroad that fulfill your academic requirements. Determine where going abroad works best with your degree plan and learning path.
  5. Apply - All Clemson students who are planning to study abroad must complete the Clemson Study Abroad application for their chosen program. Program applications are available online.
