University Advising Services


Our office's services are a bit different than those you receive through your regular academic advisor. We are here to provide you with the following services:

The USC offers workshops throughout the semester that are open to any students. We will attend classes upon request to present on one of the following topics: 

  • Advising 101: DegreeWorks, The Advising Process, and How to Register for Classes
  • Avoiding the All Nighter: Time Management 
  • Getting over the Fear of Testing
  • Note-taking 101: Making Sense of the Lecture
  • Study Smart: Using your Academic Resources

The USC offers a variety of tutoring services with peer tutors. 

The Center for Writing Excellence offers support for any writing assignment associated with a currently registered course. 

The Mathematics Learning Center offers support for a math course in which a student is currently registered. 

Academic Tutoring Services offers support for many other 100-200 level courses that range from biology to Spanish. If a course is needed and not currently offered, students should reach out to us to see if we can still find some resources. 

If a student is interested in becoming a paid peer consultant for any of these areas, they should contact that center or come by to talk to someone in the Success Center. 

The USC offers several testing services including the GRE, ACT, SAT, PRAXIS, and CLEP. 

The Testing Center is now located at East Campus.
