Transfer and Adult Student Orientation


Transfer and Adult Student Orientation

At USC Aiken, our orientation programs are centered on you, the new student. Transfer and Adult Student Orientation is designed for students who, 1) are transferring to USC Aiken from another institution with more than 15 credit hours, 2) have attended another USC system campus and earned more than 15 credit hours; or 3) have been out of high school for at least five years. 

During the orientation program you will be introduced to faculty, staff, and students and be given an opportunity to begin learning about your opportunities and responsibilities as a student.  During orientation, you will meet with your academic adviser, become informed about your academic program and degree requirements, and register for fall 2017 classes.

Parent/Guest Orientation
Parents and guests of new students can register as guests when the student registers for their orientation program.  The parent/guest orientation program will run concurrently with the transfer and adult student orientation program.  The parent/guest program is designed for parents and guests to gain insight into the types of adjustments that students and their families will experience during the college years. 

Parent/guest orientation is not mandatory, and there is no fee to attend the parent/guest orientation.


*The August transfer orientation is limited to out-of-town students who cannot attend an earlier orientation.
