Off-Campus Programs

The Office of Off-Campus, Distance and Continuing Education sponsors off-campus programs designed to serve the needs of students outside the Clemson University main campus area. These programs are delivered online, via videoconference broadcasts, and in traditional face-to-face, off-campus classrooms in statewide locations: Greenville, Anderson, Charleston. Clemson University faculty members teach these high-quality courses to a student audience that includes working professionals with other job-related, family and community responsibilities.

Off-campus students have the same rights and privileges as on-campus students. Off-campus degree courses are easily identified by the 4000–4990 section numbers. Courses using electronic delivery methods also have a “T” in the course number and are coordinated through the Telecampus area. The location and delivery method is noted in the course message section. For more information, call 1-888-CLEMSON or visit the Clemson ONLINE website.
