My Honors College

Honors Orientation

Honors Orientation is designed to help you put together everything you’ve learned so far about joining the Gamecock and Honors communities this fall. During our one-hour virtual session, you will hear from Honors upperclassmen, find out more about the Honors experience and learn how to get involved within the Honors community. This is also an opportunity to ask questions after completing UofSC’s New Student Orientation.

Join us for Honors Orientation

Attendance at Honors Orientation is mandatory for all incoming Honors freshmen. You will be assigned an Honors Orientation session based on the date you registered for New Student Orientation. Your Honors Orientation session will take place at the end the week in which you attended your Virtual Day of Orientation (schedule below). Registration information will be provided as part of your New Student Orientation portal beginning June 5th. Once you’re registered, a link will be sent to your UofSC email address (24 hours prior to your Honors Orientation) which will allow you to join the virtual session.
