Study Abroad, located in the Office of International Programs (OIP) offers several opportunities for Clayton State students, including international students, to complete part of their degree requirements through short-term academic programs at partner institutions in other countries.
International students are encouraged to participate in short-term study abroad program outside the U.S. as a Clayton State student. Regarding F1 and J1 enrollment requirements in the U.S., you are considered properly enrolled at Clayton State, even when studying outside the U.S., if the Clayton State study abroad program meets the "full-time enrollment" requirement for your U.S. visa.
However, additional visas may be required to enter other countries, depending on the diplomatic relationship between your home country and your destination country. Your F1 or J1 visa only allows you to enter the U.S, not other countries.
Consult with OIP, and contact the embassy of the country you will be visiting well in advance to inquire about visa requirements relevant to your citizenship status.
