Student Success

The Student Success Center exists to help students succeed in their studies, graduate from USC Upstate in a timely manner, and begin a career or graduate study. Within the Center, four main areas are supported:

Academic Support
The primary student retention unit on campus, responsible for most campus tutoring services, supplemental instruction, and University 101 classes to provide students with the tools and resources needed to make a smooth transition into college.

Advising Services
Provides outreach, assistance and academic advising services to all undeclared students, those on academic probation, and those in danger of losing scholarship funding. In collaboration with student life and residential life, Advising Services also provides academic programming to residential students. For more information, call 864-503-5392.

Career Services
Works closely with Academic Support Services to help students clarify their occupational goals and sharpen their academic focus. In collaboration with faculty and area businesses, Career Services aims to provide internship opportunities for students, as well as employment resources and prospects upon graduation.

Opportunity Network
A program designed to assist students in achieving their goals as they confront the challenges of completing a college degree. It provides services to eligible students from the time they are accepted to the University through graduation.
