Orientation, Advisement and Registration is the time to learn everything you need to know before beginning your first semester at USC Upstate. Meet your classmates, get acquainted with the campus and register for classes! You’ll meet with an academic advisor who will help you choose the best courses for you, and Student Orientation Leaders will help you through the registration process. USC Upstate offers orientation sessions for freshman and transfer students as well as parents.
Freshmen (age 20 or younger)
All new freshman students under the age of 20 are required to attend one of the two-day programs. Dates are offered according to your intended major. Day one of the two-day program includes a full day of information sessions for students and parents, lunch, advisement and activities. Day two includes breakfast, sessions for students and registration. All freshmen age 20 and under are required to stay overnight during OAR. For more information, check out the Freshman Orientation FAQ.
Parents, we didn't forget about you! The best way to discover where and how your son or daughter will spend the next few years of his or her life is to attend USC Upstate’s Parent Orientation, a program designed to help parents learn what to expect from the freshman year of college. For more information, check out the Orientation FAQ for Parents. If you have any additional questions, you can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll be glad to help you.
