Welcome Parents and Families

When a student selects a university, it's a decision that affects the entire family. Not only is your student embarking on a new journey at Clemson, but so are you.
We understand how challenging this transition can be. That's why we want to equip you with the information and resources you'll need to stay connected and to support your child during his or her years at Clemson. There are also opportunities for you to get involved in our Parents’ Council, a volunteer group that provides parents a voice within the University.
Clemson’s campus is an exciting and collaborative place to live and learn. Our research, small classes, involved faculty and high-caliber education create an environment that can prepare your student for whatever the future holds.
