First-Year & Transfer Orientation

The purpose of Orientation is to ensure each new student is cleared and prepared to begin classes and have a successful semester. By Friday, January 8th, you will have received your class schedule, your course and fee statement, and housing assignment (if living on campus). If you have not, we will help you take care of this during Orientation. 

You must be cleared by the business office, before moving in and starting classes. To be cleared, you must:

  • Submit all transcripts to the Admissions Office (we must have official final transcripts).
  • Submit all Health Forms, including Covid 19 Test results.
  • Speak with Success Coach to confirm schedule
  • Submit a Housing Application if you plan to live on campus in the Halo  (found under student services) 
  • Review Course and Fee Statement and Payment Options in the Halo

Students must have a zero balance or payment plan in place to be considered cleared. 

Once you are cleared, you will be able to schedule a time to move in and begin classes on Monday, January  11th. 

Once you have been admitted and completed your commitment form, you will need to register for Spring Orientation which will be held on:

COVID Testing Requirments for Spring Semester 2021:

To protect the health and well-being of the campus community, it is essential that Limestone University students have a COVID-19 diagnostic test no later than 10 days prior to the start of the spring semester that begins in January of 2021. Students must submit online the necessary testing results prior to moving back into residential housing or attending classes on the Day Campus in Gaffney.

As was the case prior to the beginning of the current 2020-2021 academic year that started this past August, Limestone Day Campus students are required to show proof of COVID-19 testing before moving into residence halls (for residents) or before attending the first day of classes (for non-residents). Testing information must be sent to (non-athletes) or submitted to Athletics (athletes) and can include one of the following:

  • Proof of prior COVID-19 infection;
  • Proof of presence of COVID-19 antibodies; or
  • Proof of negative COVID-19 test results which was taken within 10 days of your scheduled move-in day (for residents) or the start of classes (for non-residents).

Limestone University expects all students to be tested for COVID-19. Individuals should obtain a test shortly before their return to campus, by a method of their choosing. Testing may be obtained through community-based testing sites (many at no charge), commercial providers, or a primary care physician. If a student cannot obtain a test in the needed window, one can be administered upon arrival on campus for a fee. Please contact the Health Center to schedule.
