Advisement for Spring 2023

Undergraduate Students
 

All USC Roski majors are required to meet with a Roski advisor before registering for the next semester of classes.  The most productive meetings occur when students are prepared and have already reviewed course offerings via the USC Schedule of Classes website.
 

  • USC Roski majors with last names A ­– K, schedule your advisement with Rosalva Isidoro.
  • 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 October 3rd

through October 12th.

  • ​​NCAA student-athletes and others with priority registration, you must email your Roski advisor to schedule an appointment.

 

**Please note Fall Break (Oct. 13-14) will be open to any student who wishes to schedule an appt.

 

  • Junior/U3 students (64—95.5 units) can schedule appointments to meet with an advisor from October 12th through October 24th.

 

  • Sophomore/U2 students (32—63.5 units) can schedule appointments to meet with an advisor from October 24th through November 1st.           

                                     

  • Freshman/U1 students (0—31.5 units) can schedule appointments to meet with an advisor from November 1st through November 10th.                       

 

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

If a student fails to show for a scheduled meeting, they will have to wait to reschedule 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 November 14th- November 22nd.

 

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 Spring 2023 classes (e.g., you are graduating at the end of the fall semester or you will be taking a leave of absence), you do not have to sit for a mandatory advisement appointment. 

 

Below are directions for online scheduling of a Mandatory Advisement session:

  1. Log into myUSC.
  2. Go to the Undergraduate Advisement tab.
  3. Review the available appointment times & choose one that works for you.
    • Students with last names (A ­– K) meet with Academic Advisor, Rosalva Isidoro.
    • Students with last names (L ­– Z) meet with Academic Advisor, Jahtm Flores.
  4. You will receive an email confirmation of your appointment.
  5. Arrive ON TIME to the Zoom meeting. All meetings will be held via Zoom, as the advising team is mobile this year, meaning they are working from several locations & Zoom is the most efficient tool.
  6. If you are unable to attend your scheduled meeting, cancel your appointment in the Undergraduate Student Advisement tab and email your advisor as soon as possible.
     

Graduate Students

All Roski Graduate students (MFA Art, MFA Design, MA CPPS) should schedule an appointment directly with Antonio Bartolome & Nazeli Hosik. Mandatory advisement meetings will be held virtually and in-person. Graduate students will not be able to register for classes until they meet with Antonio Bartolome & Nazeli Hosik. Graduate students should meet with their advisor no later than the end of the semester.

Antonio Bartolome, anbartol@usc.edu

Nazeli Hosik, hosik@usc.edu
