Advising and Mentoring

The University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy helps you toward successful college and career experiences. Our academic advisers, mentors and preceptors provide individualized attention that helps you move toward your degree of choice with confidence.

Advising

Academic advising is handled by each of the individual schools and colleges that comprise the Columbia campus of the University of South Carolina. As a student in the College of Pharmacy, you have a team of pharmacy-specialist advisers who are ready and willing to help you with everything from finding the right classes to securing a residency or degree that fits your goals.

Your pre-pharmacy and professional studies advisers are key resources in your academic growth and development. They will discuss your educational and career goals to ensure your studies are on track and share options for extracurriculars and electives, volunteer service experiences or other student needs so that your transition is as seamless as possible.

This commitment to top-quality advising begins within the College of Pharmacy and extends into the University of South Carolina as a whole. The University Advising Center also supports students, academic advisers and the campus community with a range of resources, training, services and assessment for academic advising in accordance with national best practices.


Mentoring

Our ever-growing mentor and preceptor team is ready and willing to share professional expertise with you. You will benefit from a wealth of knowledge and experience that’s shared by our mentors within a number of practice areas.

These important educators facilitate your learning and help you link your classroom learning to the professional practice. With support, you'll translate your knowledge into actionable skills that help patients achieve the best possible outcomes.
