Transfer Orientation

All new students starting in the Spring of 2016 are required to attend a 1-Day Orientation program on January 7, 2016 prior to the start of classes. During this time  students will meet with representatives from their academic college, the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, the Office of the Registar, Student Life and many others.‌

Once you register for the 1-day Transfer Orientation, you may contact your Academic Advisor and go ahead and register for your Fall 2015 classes.

In addition, call New Student and Family Programs at 843/349.2027 and let us know that you are going to pre-register for your classes so that we can lift your Orientation hold.
