Academic Advisement

All student services programs for undergraduates in the Darla Moore School of Business are coordinated and administered through the Undergraduate Division of the college.

Academic Advisement

Academic advising for Moore School students is provided through a centralized framework. Professional advisors and administrators are available to business undergraduates on a year-round basis. Students may either walk-in or make an appointment to meet with an advisor. Advisors are not assigned and students may select the Advisor they would like to work with or choose a first available advisor. Academic advisors coordinate advising activities, including educational planning toward meeting degree requirements, study abroad advisement, scheduling assistance and referrals to campus resources.

Advisors are also a resource to discuss the extensive opportunities for extracurricular and leadership activities available at the University of South Carolina and the Moore School. To enrich your college experience, our advisors have compiled an undergraduate handbook which outlines our programs, opportunities and expectations for your success at the Moore School and beyond. Additionally, undergraduate advisors work closely with the University of South Carolina Career Center and the Office of Career Management, where specialized career services are offered to business juniors and seniors.

General Advisement Information

Students meet with an advisor during the formal advisement period before registration begins. All students are seen individually for advisement. Students are notified by email, Facebook, and Twitter when it is time to sign up for fall and spring advisement appointments.

Registration for courses takes place after the formal advisement period is over. 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 at
