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 UofSC 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 2020, 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 2020 classes.

Parent/Family of Transfer Students Orientation

The parent/family orientation program is designed for parents/family to gain insight into the types of adjustments that the students and their families will experience during the college years.

We hope that you can take part in our orientation this summer and look forward to seeing you and your student on campus this fall.

Due to the need for social distancing, we are limiting one guest per student.
