Advisement Meeting

Your academic advisor, Dr. Viet Bui, will be emailing you at your USC email account on July 29 with information for an advisement meeting on Zoom. You must attend an advisement meeting in order to register for your classes in the coming semester. If you do not meet with your advisor, then you will not have the necessary departmental clearances (D-clearances) to register for your classes.

Please be sure to have access to your myUSC portal during the advisement meeting so that you are able to use Web Registration.


You will be able to register for your classes in the coming semester during and immediately following your advisement meeting as long as you do not have a hold on your account and are able to log into Web Registration.
