International Services, as part of the Office of Global Engagement, welcomes all international students, scholars, and faculty from around the world to Clemson University. Our office is committed to providing the highest quality of service to Clemson’s international community. We offer crucial core services which include comprehensive orientation programs, immigration advising, education, guidance, outreach, and advocacy. As such, we seek to create a campus environment that is conducive to each individual successfully obtaining their educational, professional, and personal goals.

Our team of staff and advisors are the campus authority on immigration regulations relevant to students and scholars who hold F1 and J1 visas. To assist our campus partners and international employees, we provide experienced guidance on non-immigrant employment visas such as H-1B, TN, and E-3, etc. For eligible employees, using approved outside legal counsel, we facilitate petitions for legal permanent residency. International Services serves as a critical liaison between Clemson’s international community and the complicated and constantly evolving U.S. immigration landscape.

We maintain compliance with all regulations set forth by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Department of State, and the Student and Exchange Visitor Program. Our advisors are federally mandated to maintain and update student and scholar records and ensure all pertinent information is up-to-date in the Student Exchange and Visitor Information System (SEVIS) system. By doing so, we insure our ability to continue to host international students, scholars, and faculty at Clemson University.

The primary goal for International Services is to provide a welcoming environment, while offering accurate immigration advising, to Clemson’s international students, scholars, faculty and our campus partners.

Thank you for choosing Clemson. Go Tigers!
