How to Register for Orientation
Students can register online through logging into your Enrollment Checklist. After you have successfully registered online, you will receive an e-mail confirmation.
Please note that any session change made after your reservation is processed will result in a $10.00 service fee. This fee is non-refundable. To request a change to your Orientation registration (session change, adding a family member, etc.), please email the Office of New Student and Family Programs at email@example.com.
NOTE: If you are having difficulty accessing your Enrollment Checklist account, you will need to contact Winthrop IT HelpDesk at 803/323-2400 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When your student registers for an Orientation session, he or she can register any family members wishing to attend the Family Orientation. Family Orientation is offered with all Orientation sessions EXCEPT Transfer Advising/Registration Only (May 25 and July 13).
