Parent & Family Information

In this Section

Having a global experience will set your son or daughter apart from the crowd.  They will grow in ways that you can’t possibly imagine, and will be better prepared for the global workforce they will enter upon completing their degree at Clarkson. 

We are partnered with over 40 universities in over 20 countries to provide high quality educational experiences for your students.  The staff of the International Center have visited the majority of our partner locations, and have relationships with the international teams at each university. 

The International Center staff welcomes questions from the parents and families of our students who plan to study abroad.  However, we do expect our students to take responsibility for every step in the process of going abroad – from selecting the school, their courses, applying for visas, booking flights, arranging housing, etc.

This guide was developed for you to have the information you need as a parent or family member so you are informed and able to support your son or daughter through this exciting experience.
