OneCarolina hits another milestone as fall registration gets underway

Thousands of undergraduate students at the University of South Carolina’s Columbia campus began registering for fall classes using Self Service Carolina (SSC) for the first time on Monday, marking the first time in nearly 20 years that USC students have registered for classes without using VIP. SSC is the product of OneCarolina, the multi-year initiative aimed at overhauling the way students, faculty, and staff connect with the University.

 “This is an exciting day for all of us. And while we’re pleased with the way things have gone so far, there’s still a lot of work to be done,” said Registrar Aaron Marterer. “Our goal with Self Service Carolina has been to meet the needs of our students. Over time, we’re planning on adding even more, making the way they interact with USC more capable and robust.”

OneCarolina Project Director Bob Swab, who has seen both financial aid and admissions functionality move to SSC in the past several months, said he was proud of the project’s accomplishments.

“When we set to work on OneCarolina in 2010, we were already anxious for this day to arrive, and now that it’s here, we certainly feel good about what’s been accomplished,” he said. “We have students registering, checking their financial aid information, and applying for admission using a new self-service system that moves our entire university forward. I think those are all positive steps.”

Students should visit to sign in to Self Service Carolina using their VIP ID and password. If they want to register for summer classes, they’ll still need to use VIP. All student services will be moved over to SSC by the end of 2013.

If students run into any technical issues while trying to register, they should contact the UTS Service Desk at (803) 777-1800.
