We encourage all students to become proactive in seeking advice on matters relating to their college career. Our outstanding advisors are available to assist with academic issues, as well as help prevent academic mishaps and ensure a smooth transition to and throughout college life at the University of South Carolina.
Your academic advisor will be meeting with you one-on-one at least twice a year for advisement. We'll notify you by email when it's time to sign up for advisement.
To make the most of your time with an advisor, please familiarize yourself with the Academic Advising Syllabus.
Professional advisors are available to HRSM undergraduates on a year-round basis. Students may make appointments to meet with an advisor. A team of professional academic advisors coordinates advising activities, including educational planning toward meeting degree requirements, study abroad advisement, scheduling assistance and referrals to campus resources.
Students meet with an advisor during the formal advisement period before registration begins. All students are seen individually for advisement. Students are notified by e-mail and Blackboard when it is time to sign up for Summer, Fall and Spring advisement appointments.
Registration for courses takes place after the formal advisement period is over. You must be advised prior to registration. 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 on the Self Service Carolina registration system.
Remember, advisement is done by classification. Please refer to your campus email address and Blackboard for advisement appointment dates.
For scheduling questions or concerns please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
