New Student Checklist

Before you arrive on campus for the semester, you must complete the following items, if you have not already done so.

Finalizing Your Admission

  • Submit your residency information
    • You can confirm your residency on WebAdvisor under the "Communications" section. Click the link that says "South Carolina Residency for Tuition and Fee Purposes" to see whether you are classified as an in-state or out-of-state student. If it reads undetermined, note the list of documents that are required to make a determination.
  • Show proof of lawful/legal presence
    • Many students complete this task when they fill out their FAFSA. If you have not received an email directly from the Office of Admissions and Merit Awards, then you have likely completed this task. You can confirm that you are all set by clicking on the "Students" tab and then under the "Communications" section. Click the link that says "South Carolina Residency for Tuition and Fee Purposes."
