Parent Communication

Family Cast - a podcast series just for you

We encourage parents to stay connected and learn more about your Clemson student through our online podcasts, Family Cast. Listen and learn about the student experience regarding their studies, life on campus and new interactions with their families.

Parents' Planning Calendar

The annual Parents' Planning Calendar, Seasons of Change, is available each year in June. Take a look to view the information we provide. There is valuable information included about the Clemson academic deadlines, as well as tips and CU Facts. Parents can obtain a copy during all summer orientation sessions and from our office on campus. There is a $5 shipping and handling fee to mail it to you. You may remit payment by check, payable to Clemson University, mailed to New Student and Family Programs, 902 University Union, Clemson, SC 29634-4005. Or you may pay by credit/debit card. Contact our business center representative, Sarah Reeves, at 864-656-2136 and she can process the payment over the phone.

Clemson Family Press - parent newsletters

Clemson is ready to provide parents with information about upcoming events on campus, important dates and deadlines as well as campus news. The Clemson Family Press is an electronic newsletter distributed throughout the year; the current schedule is two in the spring semester, one each in summer and fall semesters. The sender of these emails is "Clemson Family Programs". These newsletters will keep you updated about on-campus events as well as transitions your student may be experiencing during that time. Information will be included for parents of all students, freshmen to seniors.

Parents of new students can expect to start receiving the newsletter by the end of their student's first semester. If you want to be added to the email distribution list, please complete this online form with your contact information.

For your reference, here are recent issues:
