Welcome to the

University of South Carolina!

You have reached the Office of New Student Orientation's home page!  Start here to learn more about what steps you must take before you can reserve a spot at New Student Orientation.  We typically find that new students who take the time to review our web pages and follow our instructions tend to have fewer questions and feel more prepared prior to their arrival at New Student Orientation.  Over the next few months, weeks, or even days you will be taking many steps to prepare for your time here.  Let us be your guide as you begin this transition into our Carolina Community. Go Gamecocks!
