Welcome to Clemson University Orientation for 2015 fall semester.

Things to Know

Orientation for you is a one-day program. The Orientation and Transition Fee is $220, nonrefundable. 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.

Your orientation session begins with check-in at 8 a.m. in the Hendrix Student Center and concludes by 5:30 p.m. after course registration. Lunch is included.

On campus housing is not included in the fee, but is available in Manning Hall. Room includes a pillow, linens and towels. We recommend that you pack light. Students are required to leave the residence hall and return their room keys/fobs by noon. There is no storage space available for luggage, backpacks or other personal items. Options for you during online registration:

  • You may add pre-orientation housing for the night before your session at an additional cost of $20. 
  • You may add post-orientation housing for the night of your session at an additional cost of $20.

NOTE: Housing roommates for students are assigned randomly, as each student checks in. If you want to room with a particular person, the two of you would need to check in at the same time and request the same room.

How to Register a Guest

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. Guests will attend their own orientation program, which does not follow the student program. Guests are responsible for their own accommodations; we do not provide any housing options for your guests.


Contact our office with any questions you may have about orientation. You can reach us at 864-656-0515 or orientation@clemson.edu. We look forward to seeing you on campus this summer!
