Advisement Information

Advisement for the Spring 2019 semester will run October 22-November 2 . All students must be advised before they can register for classes.

Every student must be advised by a faculty member before registering for classes. You can find your advisor's name by going to my.sc.edu and login in by clicking on "Sign in to Self Service Carolina (SSC)". Then go to "Student Records", then "View Student Information". Or, you can drop by Student Services.

You can schedule a meeting time with your advisor via EAB Pathfinder, if they use it. If they do not, then email them to set up a time.

DegreeWorks lets you check your progress towards a degree and tells you what classes you need to take in order to graduate. There is also a DegreeWorks tutorial.

You can use our future class offerings schedule to plan your future schedule. Note that a few courses are only offered once a year.

Make sure that you satisfy all the prereqs of the classes that you plan to take. If you don't then Banner will not allow you to sign up for the class. If you believe you don't need the prereqs, discuss it with your advisor. If he or she agrees then you can fill out a Request for Prereq Waiver. If that request is approved then you will be allowed to sign up for the class.

If a class is full by the time you try to sign up for it, fill out our Override Request form (aka "the wait list") and we will try to increase the class size so you can sign up. You can do the same thing for courses in other departments. Namely, you can submit math class override requests, physics class override requests (look for "Override Request" in their websites), or a business course seat request.

Our combined B.S./M.S. degree program lets you get an MS in just 1 year.

Deadlines to remember

  1. If you are a second-semester Junior then you should do a Senior/Graduation check at Student Services, to check that you will have all the classes required to graduate.
  2. If you will graduate at the end of this semester then you must turn in your Graduation Application at Student Services.

If you have any questions or problems, please contact our Undergraduate Director Dr. Jose Vidal.
