Welcome to Clemson University Orientation for 2014 fall semester.
Orientation for you is a two-day program. The Orientation and Transition Fee is $275. This fee provides for the complete orientation experience, which includes the summer program and Clemson Connect in August before classes start. This is a series of integrated programs designed to assist new students in their successful transition to Clemson.
Day 1 begins with check-in at 8 a.m. in the Hendrix Student Center; Day 2 concludes by 3 p.m. after course registration. Meals are included - lunch and dinner on Day 1 and breakfast on Day 2. A schedule-at-a-glance will be available soon to outline the events and programs for both days.
Students are provided housing in Manning Hall for the night of Day 1; it is included in the fee. Room includes a pillow, linens and towels. Options for you during online registration:
During online registration, you may add one or two guests. The fee for each guest is $25; this fee covers their materials, the program and lunch on Day 1. Guests will attend their own orientation program, which does not follow the student program at times. A schedule-at-a-glance will be available soon.
Guests are responsible for obtaining their own accommodations during orientation. There is an option for you to reserve and purchase on-campus housing for your guests; this fee is in addition to the guest fee. The rooms are located in a traditional-style student residence hall; it is not a hotel setting. The room includes a pillow, linens and towels, and internet access (no television, alarm clock or other typical hotel amenities provided).
