What We Do

    Defining the Partnership

    Academic Advising is a partnership between the student and their assigned advisor, through which students clarify, pursue, and reevaluate goals; navigate their academic journey, and engage with their campus community. Advisors serve as students’ first point of contact to guide them through college and beyond.

    Academic Advisors are full-time professional staff members who help students make the most of their time at USC both in and out of the classroom. Advisors provide support through email, in-person or virtual appointments throughout the entire calendar year (including summer).
