Parents, guardians, family members, and guests can register for a parent/family program when students register for their orientation programs. Parents and family play a huge role in their student's development and education. During the parent/family program, you will obtain information about our university and gain insight into the types of adjustments and expectations for your students as they begin their college career at USC Aiken.

Orientations for the June and July orientation dates will be virtual; the August orientation will be on campus. The program will cover student involvement, financial aid, student healthcare, campus safety, support services, and housing along with other topics that will help assist your student in their success at USC Aiken. Our orientation team is very excited about this new adventure and is working very hard to make this an amazing experience.
