Advisor Forms & Resources

This page is a dedicated resource for both advisors and students, housing numerous forms, links, and informational PDFs that can assist in the advising process at UofSC.

Appreciating Academic Advisors

Appreciating Academic Advisors is a recognition program designed to provide undergraduate students, staff, and faculty an opportunity to show their appreciation of academic advisors and the positive impact they have on our Carolinian community.

Major Maps

A major map is a layout of required courses in a given program of study, including critical courses and suggested course sequence to ensure a clear path to graduation. Advisors should log in to the Major Map Repository with their UofSC network credentials to access a major map. 

University Advisors Network

The UAN provides resources for all UofSC faculty and professional staff advisors serving undergraduate students. Effective advising supports traditional academic progression in the classroom, studio, and lab as well as extra-curricular engagement and personal growth necessary for life-long achievement. The UAN is the coordinating council for advisors at UofSC. Each college has a representative in the UAN who serves as a liaison to relay college comments and share institutional information to enhance campus-wide advising effectiveness.
