How do I transfer the Clemson course credits to my home institution?
Please contact your home institution for instructions on how to transfer credits. Ideally this should be done before the course begins, as it is possible that a particular home institution may not give a course the kind of credit that a student expects. Typically the home institution wants to see a sample syllabus. Upon completion of the course, the home institution will then want an official transcript. Information on ordering an official Clemson transcript can be found on this page: https://www.clemson.edu/registrar/student-menu/student-records/transcripts.html
