Advising 101

Developed in 2001, Advising 101 is the University’s mandatory training for all new academic advisors.  The training is also popular with student affairs and admissions staff.  The training was developed by the Office of Undergraduate Programs, in conjunction with the university’s Council on Undergraduate Education, the Council of Academic Advisors, the Vice Provost’s Academic Programs Council and the Provost’s Council of Deans.

Advising 101 is designed to provide education and training in the basics of academic advising, including relational and conceptual skill building, and knowledge about USC policies and procedures. The goal, of course, is to ensure effective and accurate delivery of service for all USC students.  More than 800 staff-level academic/administrators, and faculty have completed Advising 101 since fall 2001.
