Advisors understand that your college experience includes more than just your time in the classroom and can guide you in making decisions and choices that will help you develop both academically and personally. As your goals and interests become more defined each year, advisors can help you connect with and explore related opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. There is a lot to do and learn at USC Marshall, and advisors will provide guidance and support as you discover and engage with the many resources offered on the USC campus.
During your first year, you will see an academic advisor regularly (all students who have completed fewer than 24 units at USC are required to receive academic advisement prior to registration). You will have the opportunity to meet advisors one-on-one as well as in group meetings. Group advising sessions provide you with a chance to get to know your fellow students and hear about topics of interest to everyone, and one-on-one appointments allow you to develop a more in-depth relationship with your academic advisor so that you can work together on creating your personalized academic plan. After the first year, academic advisors will update your course plan each year and you may schedule appointments at your convenience.
To schedule an appointment with an academic advisor, please call or stop by the Office of Undergraduate Advising.
