Welcome to Your University!

On behalf of the Orientation staff, welcome to your University. The Coastal Carolina University Orientation program is designed to help students transition to college and assist family members in understanding their students’ experiences during this exciting time. Entering an academic community is an important, and sometimes stressful, time in a person's life – let us help you along the way. All of us are excited to share this experience with you and can't wait to introduce you to the Coastal Carolina University community.

This website contains information about our programs, dates, and registration procedures for upcoming sessions, an introduction to the Orientation Team, and other helpful resources to prepare you for the adventure ahead. Check out our Family Orientation, Fall 2023 page for more information on our offerings for family members.

All incoming degree-seeking students are required to complete an orientation prior to the start of classes. Click on the term you were admitted for to learn more about how you will complete this requirement.
