Welcome to the New Student Checklist. There's a ton to think about before you head off to college and we want to help make sure you think of it all.
Use the links at the right to find out about your residence hall, where you'll eat, and what's going to take place during New Student Orientation. We've also listed out all of the documents and forms you'll need when you get here. And as always, if you have any questions, give us a call or shoot us an email!
Students may add a class without an instructor's permission during the first five days of the semester. You may add a class with an instructor's permission through day 10 of the semester. Students may drop a class through day 10 of the semester.
From day 11 through 50 (10 weeks) students may withdraw from a class with their instructor's permission. Withdrawn classes will appear on the student's transcript, but will not affect the GPA. Withdrawing from a course may affect a student's bill or financial aid, so check with the Financial Aid Office before you make a schedule change. For more information on adding, dropping, and/or withdrawing, please consult the Greenville College Catalog.
All schedule changes require the signature of the student’s advisor.
Unfortunately, we cannot. Greenville College does not have a computer repair center like some bigger universities. If you experience problems with your personal computer we encourage you to contact the manufacturer or a local computer repair center.
Unfortunately, rogue access points and routers have interfered with our wireless network and are not allowed on campus.
Yes! Members of the Baggage Brigade will be at each dorm to help students move in on Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The Baggage Brigade is a group of people designated to help carry students' luggage to the dorm room. Once your vehicle is unloaded, members of the Brigade will come and carry your belongings to your room.
You'll recognize them by their Greenville College T-shirt and nametag.
Parking at the Ganton Circle parking lots, located east of Dallax Annex [building 21 on your campus map] is reserved for bookstore customers and campus visitors only, so students cannot park in this lot.
Parking along the posted fire lane on either side of Ganton Circle Drive is prohibited.
These restrictions are in effect 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
In order to play sports students must maintain a 1.75 GPA first semester of freshman year and a 2.0 GPA second semester freshman year and following.
Many of the majors and programs at Greenville College require students either to complete two semesters of college-level foreign language or to show that level of proficiency.
Because many students change their major during their college experience, we require all new students to take the Foreign Language Placement Test, proctored in Snyder Hall rooms 103, 104 and 120 [first floor of building 18, on your campus map] just in case they happen to choose a major that requires a foreign language.
PantherNet is our campus community portal. You can access it by going to https://panthernet.greenville.edu
On PantherNet you can view campus announcements, the campus calendar, and information from key administrative offices. It serves as our "jumping off" point for services and items related to your life as a student here at Greenville College.
Registration is a process that all students must complete at the beginning of every semester. During registration students verify that their schedule is correct, reconcile their bill, sign appropriate papers for financial aid, complete their Admissions folder, and receive parking permits.
New Freshmen will enroll with their COR 101 group and instructor on Saturday. Transfer students may enroll Friday or Monday. Registration begins in Krober Room/Young Lounge [building 18, on your campus map.]
The StrengthsFinder is an instrument designed to identify your top five “talents” or strengths out of a possible 34. This instrument has been developed by the Gallup Organization and has been used by many corporations throughout the world. GC is the first education institution to use the StrengthsFinder to benefit students and is serving as a national model for others.
All new freshmen and transfer students have an opportunity to take the StrengthsFinder which is now a part of the new program called StrengthsQuest in the COR 101/301 class. Others may contact Marcos Gilmore at Ext. 6616 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to pick up a book.
All students must complete a math course as part of the general education requirements. We want to be sure that you are placed in a class that matches your abilities, so we require all new students to take the Math Placement Exam.
