How do I sign up for orientation?


Orientation is a two-day program designed to help new students make a smooth transition to the College. All new students are expected to participate in both days of orientation before classes begin. Check-in for orientation occurs in the Cougar Mall between Maybank Hall and the Robert Scott Small building.

Students register for orientation by logging into their MyCharleston account with their permanent log in (which is comprised of letters), selecting the academic services tab and going to the orientation channel in the first column.  Students will need to complete the questions in the orientation registration booklet before they login to register for orientation.

To register for orientation, students must have paid their tuition deposit.

If you pay your tuition deposit after the registration form is available, please wait one week for your deposit to be processed before attempting to register.
