About Academic Advisement

We are committed to assisting students in developing their educational and life goals through every step of their college career. We help students develop tailored, step-by-step plans to attain their goals. We work one-on-one with students to develop their understanding of personal responsibility and facilitate their role in achieving their goals and plans. We help students identify and assess alternatives and academic consequences of their decisions.

The Academic Advising Center is designed to be a place for students to meet with trained personnel that can assist in planning course schedules, accessing resources available to students, and assuring each student reaches their full academic potential. Entering and navigating college can be stressful, and UofSC Aiken’s Academic Advisors are here to assist first-year and continuing students aid in this process.
