Student and Family Orientation

Please plan on attending the required iCharleston Student and Family Orientation July 19-20, 2023 on the beautiful College of Charleston campus.  


You'll have the opportunity to meet other students who have selected to participate in iCharleston, along with their families. Site partners will give presentations about their campuses and what the experience there will entail.

iCharleston staff will complete various sessions to get both students and parents ready for departure day, which is scheduled for late August. iCharleston Student and Family Orientation is designed to help students meet each other, learn about iCharleston and its structure and meet representatives from our partner institutions.

In addition, all iCharleston students will attend and participate in orientation on site at their chosen destination. Those sessions will familiarize students with the academic and personal resources available to them for a successful semester abroad.

Lastly, after arriving on the College of Charleston campus for the spring semester, iCharleston students will participate in New Student Orientation where they will complete their course schedule and registration. Additionally, they'll have the opportunity to attend convocation and sign the historic graduation books.
