Orientation programs are offered to assist new students with the transition to life at UofSC Aiken.

Our orientation programs are centered on you, the new student. Throughout 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.

Students will receive an email containing orientation program information after receiving their official acceptance letter.

Students are not charged a fee to attend an orientation program.

Prior to Attending Orientation

To ensure your orientation goes as smoothly as possible and to avoid any registration holds, please submit all records and documentation in a timely manner.

Be sure the following items are completed and/or submitted before orientation:

Math Placement

Due to the impact of COVID-19, students may choose to take the math placement test (MPT) to improve their math placement for fall 2021. The results of the MPT will be compared to the student's standardized test scores and highest placement will be granted. The math placement test must be completed by May 31, 2021. 

Students who do not have a SAT or ACT score should take the math placement test. 

Please go to my.usca.edu and click on the Newly Admitted Students tab for a complete list for what you need to do to be fully registered as a Pacer.

We look forward to seeing you on campus!
