Advisement for Fall 2020

Undergraduate Students

All USC Roski majors must meet with a Roski advisor before registering for Fall 2020 classes. You should always bring a laptop/tablet to plan your classes while in the office. The most productive meetings occur when students arrive prepared and have already reviewed course offerings via the USC Schedule of Classes website.

**All Roski mandatory advising appointments will be held via Zoom for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester. Continue to schedule via the usual means & your advisor will email you the Zoom link to your meeting.**

  • USC Roski majors with last names A ­– K, schedule your advisement with Alicia Roman.
  • USC Roski majors with last names L­ – Z, schedule your advisement with Jahtm Flores.

You will need to schedule an advisement appointment according to your class standing, which is based on the total number of units completed (USC units + transfer units). To see your class standing, go to myUSC --> OASIS --> STARS Report. 

  • Senior/U4 students (>= 96), NCAA student-athletes, and others with priority registration can schedule appointments to meet with an advisor from March 9th through March 13th.    
    • ​​NCAA student-athletes and others with priority registration, you must email your Roski advisor to schedule an appointment.
  • Senior/U4 students (>= 96 units) and Junior/U3 students (64—95.5 units) can schedule appointments to meet with an advisor from March 12th through March 27th.
  • Junior/U3 students (64—95.5 units) and Sophomore/U2 students (32—63.5 units) can schedule appointments to meet with an advisor from March 27th through April 3rd.                                         
  • Sophomore/U2 students (32—63.5 units) and Freshman/U1 students (0—31.5 units) can schedule appointments to meet with an advisor from April 3rd through April 13th.
  • Spring Break Week will be open to all Roski majors; regardless of class standing 


Each student can view their registration time via myUSC --> OASIS --> Permit to Register. It is the student’s responsibility to register for and attend an advisement appointment that occurs before they are permitted to register.

If a student fails to show for a scheduled meeting, they will have to wait to schedule a meeting. This may occur after their Permit to Register has already opened. 

  • Students that fail to schedule a meeting with a Roski advisor can schedule for a make-up appointment with a Roski advisor from April 14th through April 24th.


An advisor will only lift a student's mandatory advisement hold after the student has attended their advising appointment. If you are not registering for Fall 2020 classes (e.g., you are graduating at the end of the spring semester or you will be taking a leave of absence), you do not have to sit for a mandatory advisement session.
