Exchange Programs

Clemson University’s exchange programs are coordinated by a partnership between the University and another institution. As you’re studying elsewhere, Clemson University will accept its own exchange student from your host institution.

Deepen Your Worldview

Exchange programs deepen a student’s worldview while bolstering Clemson’s name on a global scale.

Clemson in-state tuition and fees, as well as room and board costs of the host institution, will fund students during their travels, which can run for a semester up to a full academic year. Credits from an exchange program will transfer to Clemson from the host institution upon completion.

Plan Your Study Abroad Program

Studying abroad requires careful planning to ensure that you receive all the credits you need by your anticipated graduation date. For example, you may have to take prerequisite courses or reorder some courses to free up classes to be taken abroad. You may need to consider how to finance your experience abroad. We are here to help you get to your destination and goal. Make an appointment with the College of Science Global Engagement team at the beginning of your planning process, and we’ll assist you with choosing a program, filling out applications and preparing for your time abroad.

  • STEP 1: Complete the Study Abroad Advising Application, including the virtual Study Abroad 101 session embedded within.
  • STEP 2: Explore program options and meet with your academic adviser about your degree progress and planning. Once you have an idea when to go abroad as well as what courses you will be able to take abroad, we can help you decide which program is right for you.
  • STEP 3: Make an appointment with the global engagement team for the College of Science. We will help you navigate the study abroad process, beginning with how to select a program. We will then help you verify that programs are accredited. We can also explain how your chosen program will convert into credits at Clemson.
  • STEP 4: Once you’ve found the ideal program, it’s time to apply and get courses approved for credit transfer. Have your coursework pre-approved to ensure you receive the maximum credit for the courses you take abroad. Complete the “Request to take Courses Abroad” form by meeting with your academic adviser and financial aid adviser, if applicable. This may require multiple signatures.
