Making a Reservation for New Student Orientation

Follow the instructions below to log-in and complete your reservation. Your reservation isn’t complete until you have paid for your New Student Orientation session. Please do not make any flight or hotel reservations until you have completed your reservation- if you make these reservations before you have reserved and paid for your New Student Orientation, we cannot guarantee availability!

If you decide you want to change your session, you can log back into the system to see what dates are available to you, but remember session availability closes 72 hours before the start of each event.

Things to consider as you are attempting to complete your reservation for New Student Orientation:

  • Have I reviewed all of the content in regard to Freshman Student Orientation?

Once you have reviewed all of the appropriate information you can begin the reservation process by logging into our system via Self Service Carolina.  Review these steps and watch our video for more through instructions on how to complete the reservation process.
