SUMMER 2013 ORIENTATION
New students who pay the enrollment confirmation fee to the Office of Admissions and Adult Student Services at the beginning of March will receive information regarding orientation registration in the mail. Students can complete their orientation registration online through MyCharleston starting on March 20th.
Students register for orientation by logging into their MyCharleston account, selecting the academic services tab and going to the orientation box in the first column. Students will need to complete the questions in the orientation registration booklet before they log in to register for orientation.

* transfers only, transfer students are welcome to attend any of the sessions 1 through 8, but you are eligible to attend an orientation session on August 12-13 (Session 9), which is designed especially for you. There are a limited number of seats available that we will reserve on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you live 700 miles or more from Charleston, you are welcome to attend any of the 10 orientations, but you are eligible to attend an orientation session on August 15-16 (Session 10), which is designed especially for you. There are a limited number of seats available that we will reserve on a first-come, first-served basis.
Because we cannot accommodate all students who live 700 miles or more from the campus in this one session, we encourage you to attend an earlier orientation session if you possibly can.
If you are participating in sorority rush or summer preview, you will not be able to attend Session 10 on August 15-16.
All students have an orientation hold on their file until they attend orientation. It does not affect the ability to register for orientation.
