At USC Aiken, our orientation programs are centered on you, the new student. Transfer and Non-Traditional Student Orientations are 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 advisor, become informed about your academic program and degree requirements, and register for fall 2019 classes.
