Transfer & Non-Traditional Student Orientation

Orientation

Transfer and Non-Traditional Students are 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.

As a new student for Fall 2022, transfer students must attend an orientation program to assist with a smooth transition to UofSC Aiken.

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 2022 classes.
