Missed Orientation to USC?

Breadcrumbs

Didn't make it to Orientation? Or maybe you couldn't squeeze in all of the workshops and sessions you wanted to.

To help you to start your semester off well, here is information for you to access the resources you will need.

USC101 Students Guide to USC

USC101 is your go-to guide for information on being a student. Visit USC101 - Students Guide to USC where you can try out the system before you have to use it for real (you'll need to log-in with your USC username and password). In your first few weeks you can work through each of the learning modules and while using USC101 you'll also become more familiar with Blackboard, the Learning Management System. You may not know it yet but you'll be using Blackboard every day.

We've uploaded the presentation slides from the Essential Program Information Sessions to USC101 To access these, click on the Missed Orientation? tab in the left-hand menu from USC101 If your program slides aren't there yet, keep checking back - we'll be uploading more over the next few days.

Also check out the USC101 discussion boards. Student Mentors will be online to answer your questions and help you navigate your first few weeks on campus.
