As a BSN student or pre-BSN student, you will be assigned to an academic advisor. Please check VIP to find the name of your advisor. All of the nursing advisors offices are located in the Health Education Complex. Your advisor will also be available to you for questions or concerns you may have during the year. Advisors' office hours are posted next to their office doors.
Each semester there is a pre-registration period for current USC Upstate students to sign up for the next semester's classes. Notices of advisement and registration periods are posted on campus during the months of October and March. You are responsible for looking for these notices and for making an appointment with your academic advisor to schedule classes for the next semester. Each advisor will have a "sign-up sheet" posted next to their office door listing times and dates they will be available to meet with you.
Once you sign up for an appointment, it is very important that you keep it. However, if you need to cancel the appointment, you will need to sign up for another time during the same week.
