Academic advising for Moore School students is provided through a centralized framework. Professional advisers and administrators are available to business undergraduates on a year-round basis. Students may either walk in or make an appointment to meet with an adviser. Advisers are not assigned, so students may select the adviser they would like to work with or choose the first available adviser. Academic advisers coordinate advising activities, including educational planning toward meeting degree requirements, study abroad advisement, scheduling assistance and referrals to campus resources.
Advisers are also a resource to discuss the extensive opportunities for extracurricular and leadership activities available at the University of South Carolina and the Moore School. To enrich your college experience, our advisers have compiled an undergraduate handbook that outlines our programs, opportunities and expectations for your success at the Moore School and beyond. Additionally, undergraduate advisers work closely with the University of South Carolina Career Center and the Moore School's Office of Career Management, where specialized career services are offered to business juniors and seniors.
General Advisement Information
Students meet with an adviser during the formal advisement period before registration begins. All students are seen individually for advisement. Students are notified by email, Facebook and Twitter when it is time to sign up for fall and spring advisement appointments.
Registration for courses takes place after the formal advisement period is over. The University of South Carolina Registrar’s Office assigns each student an appointment date to register. Students may check their appointment time and register for courses at my.sc.edu.
Advisers are available by email, phone or appointment or during weekly drop-in hours for current business students in Suite 301.
