Career Counseling

Mission: The Priscilla A. Scotlan Career Services Center is committed to providing a wide range of quality career planning assistance to USF alumni, with a particular focus on career development and transition.

However, the Career Services Center will charge a $75/year fee for alumni who request services beyond one year of graduation. This fee will entitle an alum to 3 career counseling sessions (drop-ins and/or appointments) per year. Additionally, one complimentary meeting (drop-in or appointment) every 12 calendar months is offered to alumni past one year after graduation to discuss CSC services. 

In order to best serve our USF Alumni, the Career Services Center offers:
