Register for Orientation


Registration for orientation is an online program. During registration, you have the option to purchase the Clemson t-shirt designed specifically for orientation attendees, a Clemson water bottle and the Parent Fan Pack.

The student Orientation and Transition fees are nonrefundable. 

Please be reminded that ANY person attending orientation with you (parent or other family member, legal guardian, spouse or best friend) will need to be a registered guest and pay the guest fee.

  • A valid credit card (The University accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express).

Helpful info:

  • Once you pay the deposit online to University Admissions, you need to wait at least one day before you try and access the online orientation registration program. 

  • All students are encouraged to attend any open session that best fits their summer schedule.

  • Sessions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis by academic major. There are also overall session capacities in place. There are no waiting lists.
