Welcome to Francis Marion University! We are excited you have chosen to attend FMU and look forward to meeting you during one of our summer orientations.


The Office of Orientation’s primary purpose is to aid students in their transition to the institution by providing them with an overview of the tools and resources available to help them excel academically and socially within the campus community.


Our goal is that all new students who attend orientation will:

  • begin to feel a sense of connection to Francis Marion University.
  • know what resources are available to them and where they are located on the campus.
  • understand the expectations, traditions, and opportunities at the University.
  • become acquainted with both new and current students through activities meant to facilitate peer-to-peer interactions.
  • meet with an academic advisor within their department who will answer advising questions and help the student register for courses.
How Do I Signup For Orientation?

We want to make the signup process for orientation as easy as possible.  Therefore, you can signup in a number of different ways.  You can signup online, over the phone (843.661.1288) or by mail.
