Each year, Clemson faculty members lead and direct study abroad programs at locations around the world. For the majority of these programs, you travel with CU faculty and take CU courses. You are registered for CU courses and receive a grade for these courses just as you would if you were on campus.
Costs include Clemson tuition and fees, the study abroad fee, and other additional program fees/costs (for items such as accommodations, field trips, group transportation) which vary by program. You pay a deposit for the program at the time you submit your application. The deposit is $350 for summer and fall break/spring break programs and $750 for semester programs. This deposit is credited toward the program fees. The Office of Global Engagement reserves the right to cancel any program, revise its offerings, or to make any adjustments to the preliminary cost estimates due to conditions beyond its control.
Clemson has exchange agreements with many institutions around the world. These exchange agreements give you the chance to study at an overseas university, and "in exchange" give a student from the overseas university a chance to study at Clemson. While overseas, you remain registered at Clemson in a course called SAP 1010. This course maintains your status as a full-time Clemson student. You will enroll directly in classes at the overseas university. You must have your classes at the overseas university pre-approved so that you will receive transfer credit (hours only, not grades) after we receive a copy of the transcript from the overseas university.
Costs include full-time Clemson tuition and fees, the study abroad fee, residential costs and fees (to host university or other entity, see Payments below) and your personal living and travel expenses.
Many study abroad opportunities are available through third-party provider programs. Clemson maintains memberships and affiliations with a number of these providers. Generally, third-party providers give you assistance with logistical arrangements (travel, visas, etc.), as well as with the classes and academic components of your study abroad experience.
