The Pam Hendrix Center for Education Abroad is Clemson University’s study abroad office. We offer a wide range of outstanding education abroad experiences for all students, including opportunities to study, intern, research and volunteer abroad.

Nearly 1,300 students participate in an international experience each year, including semester, summer and short-term programs.

Need to know Information

Study abroad programs are available all over the world! Your interests, the type of experience, and the courses you are looking for will help determine the destination. Students may only travel to destinations with the US Department of State’s level 1 or 2 and CDC level 1. If a student wishes to travel to a country with higher levels, they may submit an appeal to Clemson's High-Risk Travel Committee for consideration.

Study abroad students typically take the same course load as they would at Clemson (12-18 credits for semester programs and 3-12 credits for summer programs). This is especially important for students on financial aid. Students should discuss their specific aid package requirements with their financial aid counselor.

A common misconception about studying abroad is that it will prevent students from graduating on time. Students should work with their academic adviser and study abroad adviser to find a program that fits their curricular needs, so they meet degree requirements during their international program. This is one reason why students’ planning with academic and study abroad advisers is crucial.
