Information for specific audiences:

Advising at Carolina supports traditional academic progression in the classroom and the extra-curricular engagement necessary for life-long achievement.

The University Advisors Network provides resources for all USC faculty and professional staff advisors serving Carolina undergraduate students.

Effective advising supports traditional academic progression in the classroom, studio, and lab, as well as extra-curricular engagement and personal growth necessary for life-long achievement.

We provide information on advising for courses needed in the Carolina Core (USC general education curriculum) and in the Program Major. We also provide information on advising for USC Connect, the beyond-the classroom program for students interested in Community Service, Global Study, Internships, Peer Leadership, Research and Discovery.

The University Advisors Network (UAN) is the coordinating council for advisors at USC. Each college has a representative on the UAN who serves as a liaison to relay college comment and share institutional information to enhance campus-wide advising effectiveness.

Students looking for assistance with advisement should contact the advisement office in their college or Cross-College Advisement for referral.
