The Office of International Studies promotes and coordinates international study for Claflin University students. This Office promotes opportunities that equip students with skills that enable them to communicate in other languages, as well as to know other cultures and to understand an increasingly complex world. All students must report to the Leadership Development Center to register for Study Abroad. All applications are due for spring by October 1 and for fall by March 1.
Students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of these international opportunities.
