New to USC?

If this is your first semester at USC, once you've settled in, you might have some questions about next semester. When do you need to start thinking about this? Who do you speak with? What is D-clearance? What is a STARS Report? What classes should you take? Please review How to Register for Next Semester.

All Fine Arts majors have a mandatory advisement requirement. Before you can register for next fall or spring term, you need to meet with your Fine Arts major advisor. More info and timeline here: Academic Advisement Schedule.
