Returning Students

The Inside of Clemson University's R.M. Cooper Library

We hope that you enjoyed your study abroad program, and we are eager to hear about your experiences! We need your feedback to improve our programs and to make sure that we can give relevant information to future Clemson students who may wish to participate in your specific program or in other study abroad opportunities. Please help us improve study abroad by completing our online evaluation form.

Be sure that the transcript from your study abroad program is being sent to our office. When we receive your transcript, we will notify you. Your transcript and your Approval for Course Work to Be Taken Abroad form must match exactly. We take these forms to the Student Records Office for you to receive your course credit. We will notify you if there are any problems.

Here are some ways that you can use and share your new-found knowledge on campus:

UPIC Internships
The study abroad office maintains several internship positions through Clemson’s UPIC Intern program . These positions are related to data management, social media marketing, graphic design, and office assistance. Position descriptions and applications are always posted through Clemson JobLink and will be reviewed by our office.

Student Ambassador!
Study Abroad Ambassadors are a select group of students who work with the Study Abroad Office. As a Study Abroad Ambassador, you will have the opportunity to share your experiences with other Clemson students as a member of either the presentation or promotion team, depending on your skills and interest. Additionally, all Ambassadors have the opportunity to work with incoming exchange students and participate in International Awareness Week. Applications can be turned into E-301 Martin Hall. For more information, and to email applications, contact the Study Abroad Office at

Cultural Exchange Community
This is a living-learning community located in Calhoun Courts. It is a joint project of the Office of Global Engagement, the Gantt Intercultural Center and the Housing Office, and is an excellent opportunity for Clemson students to form friendships with our international students.

Photo Contest
This contest is only open to current Clemson undergraduate or graduate students. The Photo Contest will take place in the spring semester each year.

For information on utilizing your study abroad experience in your future career, check out the AIFS Student Guide to Study Abroad and Career Development. This guide, written by Martin Tillman of Global Career Compass and published by AIFS, aims to provide students with a framework to understand the impact and added value of study abroad for their career development. The paper makes the case that employers value study abroad and offers students strategies to pursue "purposeful" study abroad that contributes to career goals.
