Center for Student Achievement

USC Aiken recognizes advising as a foundational connection between the university and each of our students. We are committed to providing a student-centered advising experience that leads to the growth, development, and success of all students from orientation to graduation. The P.A.C.E.R.S. goals and objectives for advising guide this important work:

Prepare - Prepare students and advisors for success through training and technology

Advise - Provide a clear roadmap through each degree program with strategic benchmarks

Connect - Connect students with resources and opportunities to promote academic success and personal growth

Empower - Empower students to take responsibility for their own academic, personal, and professional success

Retain - Establish a culture of student persistence in the first year that promotes retention, progression, and graduation

Support - Help students reach their full potential through mentoring, building relationships, and providing targeted support to achieve their educational and professional goals
