Campus Resources

There are many resources for all students on Clemson campus. As a student veteran, you will find that staff and faculty are available to address any special needs you may have.

  • We strongly recommend that you visit the Center for Career and Professional Development to learn about all they have to offer you. Services include:

    • Michelin Career Center (MCC) - provides services and assistance in multiple areas including choosing a major, job and internship research, résumé and cover letter critiques, mock interviews, on-campus interviews, career fairs, and workshops for campus groups and classes.

    • University Professional Internship & Co-op Program (UPIC) - provides assistance for any student interested in obtaining an internship or co-op position on Clemson campus.

    • Cooperative Education (Co-op) - assists those students who are interested in an experience as a co-op student with a company or education.

  • It's easy to meet with a career counselor. Drop-in visits are encouraged and allow a career counselor to assist students with quick questions or issues that should take no longer than 10-15 minutes.

  • Appointments can be scheduled for more in-depth sessions; you can call 864-656-0440.

  • The Center for Career and Professional Development is located on the third floor of Hendrix Student Center; telephone is 864-656-6000.

  • Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works with students to provide access to accommodations that will enhance academic success.

  • Typical accommodations include extra time and/or reduced distraction environments for tests, early registration, digital books, captioning and interpreting services, class notes and other accommodations prescribed by the student's documentation. SAS staff understand that student veterans' needs are unique and they are ready to discuss these needs to determine appropriate accommodations.

  • SAS can assist students with social, emotional and academic issues as the student veteran returns to the civilian community.

  • Visit the Student Accessibility Services website to learn more. Their offices are located in the Class of '56 Academic Success Center, Room 239. You can contact them by email at studentaccess@lists.clemson.edu or call 864-656-6848 or South Carolina Relay System 711.

  • GreenZone Training is a special briefing for any faculty, staff or student to gain information and knowledge about the military experience, community and student veterans.

  • Training is offered once each semester. Trainees will receive a GreenZone sticker to post in a visible spot to show their support for student veterans and acknowledge a safe space for student veterans.

  • Training is not intended for student veterans necessarily, but all are welcome.

  • To participate or help facilitate the training, contact veteran@clemson.edu.

  • Each semester at the beginning of the term a special orientation just for student veterans (active duty, National Guard and Reserves) will be held. Information will be relevant to their military experience.

  • Each May and December, Military and Veteran Engagement will host a special graduation dinner for veterans, active duty, National Guard and Reserves who are graduating in that term. Graduates will receive special cords to wear at university graduation, a Challenge Coin, and a letter from the University President. For more information, contact veteran@clemson.edu. Information regarding the dinner will be sent through the SITREP. Note: August graduates will be recognized at the May student veterans graduation dinner.

Students needing general or specialized medical attention can visit Redfern for care. Appointments are recommended; call 864-656-1541.
