Additional Information:

After submitting a reservation request, you will receive:

  • An official confirmation email with a payment deadline
  • Detailed logistics letter
  • Parent consent/release of liability form to copy for each student.


Do not pay anything until you have received an official email confirmation of your reservation. Once you have received a reservation confirmation and a payment deadline, return to our website to make a secure online payment. Do not pay unless your reservation has been confirmed and you have a payment due date. Online payment with a credit card is preferred. Payment in full is due three weeks prior to your lab.


Fees are non-refundable. If a schedule conflict arises, reservations may be rescheduled within the same academic session with a two-week advance notice. The Center will reschedule with less notice if school is canceled due to weather or a similar unforeseen circumstance. If Clemson University is closed due to weather, the Science Outreach Center will not open and your laboratory field trip will be rescheduled. Contact us at 864-656-9976 to confirm weather conditions and lab hours on the morning of your trip if you have questions.


To allow us to properly plan and prepare for your laboratory, you must notify us of any change to the number of students confirmed in your original reservation two weeks prior to your trip.

If you are unable to pay by credit card, we do accept checks. Make checks payable to Clemson University and mail to: Renee Lyons, Clemson Science Outreach Center, Dean’s Office, 132 Long Hall, Clemson, SC 29634-0314. Please include the name of the coordinating teacher, school name and lab selected.
