You must meet with your assigned academic advisor each semester before registering for classes. Not sure who your advisor is? Here are some places to look. 

Finding your Academic Advisor in DegreeWorks

Your assigned academic advisor will appear at the top of your degree audit in DegreeWorks. To run a degree audit follow these simple steps: 

  1. Log in to Self-Service Carolina, select Student, and then click the DegreeWorks button. Choose the Columbia campus.
  2. Your academic advisor (if assigned) will appear in the top block of your degree audit directly under your classification. See an example here.

  4. Please note: Not all colleges/schools assign academic advisors to students in DegreeWorks. If the advisor field is missing or blank on your degree audit, contact the Student Services office in your college for help identifying your advisor.
