Update for Clemson Faculty-directed study abroad programs:

Clemson University recently updated the March 2, 2020 university policy prohibiting international travel until further notice.  Pursuant to these updated recommendations, the Pam Hendrix Center for Education Abroad will not be accepting proposals for new study abroad programs. If you are interested in setting up a Virtual+ program, please email abroad@clemson.edu. For additional updates on the status of travel, please see our Covid-19 Updates page.


Clemson University strongly encourages its students to participate in study abroad programs as part of their overall academic experience. Study abroad serves as a vital part of a student’s academic, professional and personal growth. Faculty members play an essential role in encouraging and advising students to participate in study abroad. Faculty-directed programs are a particularly important means of encouraging our students to study abroad and of ensuring the academic quality and integrity of programming.
