Undergraduate Advisement and Registration

Student Life and General Resources




Center for Academic Support

The Center for Academic Support, located in STU 301, is the central resource and referral agency for learning enrichment at USC. Upper-division students, graduate students, faculty, staff, and volunteers at USC coordinate a program of mentoring and academic enrichment in a university-wide effort to address student needs.



Office of College Advisement

Undergraduate advisement at USC offers terrific resources that can help students make the most out of their undergraduate education. Every student on campus has a staff or faculty advisor who is available to answer any questions that come up during his or her academic career at USC.

Most students will meet with their academic advisor every semester prior to registration to discuss course selection. Still, students are encouraged to see an advisor more often than once a semester to discuss opportunities and resources at USC.


Writing Center

The Writing Center is the USC Writing Program's consulting service to the whole university, providing one-to-one consultations and small-group workshops to help students — of all abilities — to improve their critical thinking and writing skills.
