Once admitted to the university as a degree seeking, non-degree seeking, or audit student, the Resource Center for Adult Students will provide you with a packet of information to assist you in beginning your journey here at Winthrop. Please feel free to contact the Resource Center with questions you may have about campus life and services.
Students admitted to Winthrop under our senior citizen programs must adhere to all Winthrop University policies and procedures.
Once admitted, but prior to the start of classes, students must do the following:
Submit immunization forms to Health and Counseling Services. All individuals over the age of 60 must provide proof for:
- Tetanus – Booster within the past 10 years
- Tuberculosis – Must provide answers to a screening questionnaire and, if required, submit TB test results and/or chest X-ray.
Immunization also is recommended for Meningococcal Disease and Meningitis, but not required for students over 25 years of age.
Immunization is a “win-win” situation for all involved, as it provides a healthy learning environment for all Winthrop faculty, staff, and students.
Senior Citizens who need these immunizations administered may do so with their own medical care personnel or can have it taken care of by Health and Counseling Services in Crawford Building for a nominal fee.
If you are a degree seeking student, you must be advised by your official academic advisor prior to the start of the term.
On the business day before classes, students must accomplish the following:
- Register for courses with the Records and Registration staff in 126 Tillman Hall. You may only register on the business day prior to the first day of classes (for fall and spring semesters). For summer classes, please contact the Resource Center for Adult Students for permissible registration dates.
- Pay any fees associated with your course at the Cashier’s Office in 22 Tillman.
- Set-up your e-mail account and get your ID card at the Help Desk in 15 Tillman.
- Register your car with Campus Police at the Good Building. There is no charge for a parking pass for senior citizens.
- Purchase books and supplies needed for courses. All books and supplies are the financial responsibility of the student and can be purchased at the Campus Bookstore in the DiGiorgio Campus Center or elsewhere.
