Tips for successful registration:

1. WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW -- BEFORE MARCH 11, 2013:

     A. Review the sample 4-yr course plan.

     B. Review your STARS report for outstanding degree requirements. To access your STARS report, visit OASIS . The Student Academic Record System (StARS) report assists students with tracking their degree progress. It contains all USC coursework, accepted transfer work and all degree requirements, including writing, diversity, language, general education, major, minor, and more.

     C. Review the sequence of studio courses.

     D. Schedule your language placement exam. Please check the USC Center for Testing & Assessment website for dates and times or visit SU 301/213-740-7166.

     E. Transfer students: Schedule portfolio reviews with faculty for equivalent courses and prerequisite waivers. Submit official sealed transcripts from all previous colleges to USC Degree Progress, REG 101, 213-740-7070.

2. WHAT YOU CAN DO BEGINNING MARCH 11, 2013:

     A. Find out your Spring 2013 web registration time -- Please visit OASIS, then Permit to Register.

     B. Check for any Restrictions (registration holds) at OASIS. Take care of these BEFORE your web registration time, otherwise you won't be able to enroll. Information on health restrictions for new USC students, such as Measles Immunity and Tuberculosis Screening is available here.

     C. Review the Fall 2013 Schedule of Classes.

     D. If you are planning to take a General Education course, review the GE course descriptions online.

4. APPOINTMENT POLICY AND COURTESY DROP-IN DAYS:

     A. If you are unable to attend your scheduled meeting, please email your advisor as soon as possible.

     B. If you are more than 10 minutes late, miss your appointment, or cancel your appointment less than 24 hours in advance, you must come to the next available Drop-In Day. D-clearance requests from these students will be reviewed on April 12th or later, during the advisement meeting.

     C. Drop-In Days are April 12th and 23rd, 9-11:50am and 1-4pm.

     D. There is no guarantee you will be able to meet with your advisor on drop-in days.

5. FOR THE MOST PRODUCTIVE ADVISEMENT MEETING:

     A. Write down your questions in advance.

     B. Bring a list of your planned classes for Fall 2013, including section numbers, class times and days. This way, we may be able to give you Roski departmental authorization ("D-clearance ") DURING your advisement appointment. Departmental authorization is not automatic: you MUST make a request, and it's a first-come, first-served process. If you need D-clearance for a non-Fine Arts (FA) course, you will need to contact the department which offers the course by phone or in person.

     C. Bring your course plan with each of the classes you plan to take each semester until graduation. This should be based on the remaining requirements on your STARS report, available at OASIS via myUSC. For example:
