Resource Center for Adult Students
Welcome to Winthrop University! Every student's path to Winthrop is unique, and we're glad you found your way to our campus.
The Resource Center for Adult Students will be open during the summer. Please check our monthly calendar for important dates and office hours.
Whether enrolled in summer classes, taking a break between semesters, or a new or prospective student, our staff would be happy to speak with you to answer any questions you may have. Please contact our office!
All incoming transfer and post-traditional students should plan on attending a "Transfer Orientation" session hosted by the Office of New Student and Family Programs. During these sessions, you'll have a chance to meet our Transfer Orientation Leaders, be advised, register for classes and more! You must register in advance to attend a session, and a link to do so should be available on your new student checklist. If you have any questions regarding the Orientation Sessions, please contact the Office of New Student and Family Programs at 803/323-2387.
August Events for New Students
