Frequently Asked Questions

  • When is final payment due?
    a. Final payments for participation in the Orientation Partners Program are due April 3, 2017.
  • Can I pick where my ad is displayed in the Garnet Guide?
    a. The Garnet Guide is a combination of resources and services relevant to a student’s first year at the University of South Carolina. When we are designing the guide we try and group information in a logical order that would make sense for someone entering the university for the first time so partners cannot choose their page placement in the guide..
  • What is the Orientation Resource Fair?
    a. The Orientation Resource Fair is a university and community wide event held during freshman and transfer orientations throughout the summer. At the Orientation Resource Fair partners have the opportunity to set up a table as new students and families “shop” around for information they want or need. There can be no actual financial transactions that occur at the Orientation Resource Fair..
