As of June 1, 2021, Clemson’s high risk travel directive has been updated making way for some student travel to resume. A select number of education abroad opportunities have been approved for the students to apply for the Spring 2022 term.
These programs have been opened for application based on the curriculum, health, safety, and student support measures they offer on site. At this time, participation in these programs cannot be guaranteed, however, the Pam Hendrix Center for Education Abroad will be constantly monitoring the covid-19 rates and responses of these host locations and programs. We advise students to consult with their academic advisor on a back-up plan, and educate themselves on the covid-19 rates at the program destination and the safety protocols being implemented by their program and local authorities.
The university is committed to the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff as they travel in pursuit of their academic goals. At times and under particular circumstances, the risks of travel may significantly outweigh the benefits and the university may deny requests for university related travel to destinations designated as high-risk. All approved programs have been reviewed with consideration to factors including local conditions, program services and support, ability to adapt to any changing situations, and have addressed health and safety protocols in line with recommendations from the Overseas Security Advisory Council and the Forum on Education Abroad.
As the nature of travel and education abroad continues to evolve, students and their families should carefully review all the information available about both the program and the destination. The Pam Hendrix Center for Education Abroad is ready to assist students as they plan for a fall semester abroad!

Any changes to these restrictions will be announced as circumstances allow.
