All students at Clemson University can take advantage of tutoring by the Academic Success Center (ASC). The tutoring schedule is available online at the ASC website:

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

CAPS provides a variety of services (on a limited basis) including individual and group counseling; workshops on topics such as assertiveness training, stress management and test anxiety; and a full range of consultative services centering on student adjustment in higher education.

Transportation Services

Clemson Area Transit (CAT)

CAT has accessible buses and routes. Routes are published and can be accessed at Occasional curb-to-curb stops can be pre-arranged through Student Disability Services. Students must be able to get to the bus on their own. Maps indicating routes are available in Student Disability Services and at the Union Information Desk.

Parking Services

Students must purchase and display a current Clemson University parking permit and a valid disability access placard in order to park in accessible parking spaces. When these are properly displayed, parking is also permitted in employee, student and timed parking zones. A campus map with information about disability access including the location of curb cuts, accessible parking and elevators is available in the Office of Student Disability Services or the Office of Parking Services.

Persons with temporary mobility impairments can obtain a time-limited disability access parking permit from Parking Services. The application for a disability access permit must be accompanied by a written statement from a physician indicating accessible parking is required and the length of time it will be needed. Individuals who need accessible parking for longer than four weeks or who desire to park in off-campus disability accessible spaces must obtain a state permit from the Department of Highways and Public Transportation.
