Academic advisement is important in planning a curriculum that fulfills general education requirements and major requirements, while allowing you to take advantage of the varied programs and classes the university offers. An adviser can help you sort through requirements and introduce interesting options for your program. If you are an undecided/undeclared student or a student interested in graduate school or law school, you can meet with advisers in the Dornsife College Advising Office. If you are a student interested in the pre-health professions (medicine, dentistry or allied health field), advisement is available in the Office of Pre-Health Advisement located in the Figueroa Building.
Dornsife College Advising and the Office of Pre-Health Advisement offer preparatory seminars and workshops each semester to help you plan your undergraduate studies at the university and/or prepare for graduate and professional school. Workshop topics offered include:
- Planning for Health Professions (usc.edu/pre-health)
- Planning for Law School (usc.edu/pre-law)
- Planning for Graduate School (usc.edu/pregrad)
