Tiger Transition: New Student Orientation


The plans for summer orientation are currently under review. The online registration for an orientation session will open at a later date. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Our team is committed to providing you with a safe and successful transition to Clemson!


Welcome to Clemson University! The new student orientation program at Clemson University is the first step in ensuring that new undergraduate students have a successful transition and integration into college life. The program promotes discussion among parents, new students, continuing students, and faculty and staff on the expectations and perceptions of the campus community.

By attending orientation students will:

  • Connect with university faculty and staff and other Clemson students

  • Complete a class schedule in their chosen major

  • Attend an academic advising session

  • Acquire more knowledge about student support services, the Division of Student Affairs, and the Clemson academic experience

  • Gain a better understanding of the personal and financial responsibilities of attending college

  • Reduce anxiety about the transition to college life

  • Understand the necessity of students taking ownership and academic responsibility in their educational process

Your transition to Clemson is a process and incorporates many great programs and events. New Student Orientation occurs during the summer, before the fall semester - it all starts here! When you come to campus for your first semester, you will participate in Tiger Transition: Kick-Off Clemson.

Parents and family members are encouraged to learn more about Clemson University and the resources available by visiting the Parents and Families website.


GRADUATE STUDENTS: This program is for undergraduate students. To learn more about the orientation scheduled for you, visit Graduate School Orientation.
