Academic Advising

From orientation to graduation, USF students work together with full-time faculty to create a personalized, comprehensive, and realistic individual academic plan based upon each student’s interests, strengths, and goals.

Academic advising is more than course selection — it’s an ongoing conversation that explores the full range of educational and co-curricular opportunities available at the university, as well as a student’s future plans beyond USF.

How Academic Advising Works

Academic advising begins with Webtrack, when incoming students complete online tutorials, register for classes, and then sign up for phone or email consultations with faculty advisers. At Orientation, students have the opportunity to meet with a faculty member, professional and/or peer advisor. Upon enrolling in a major or professional program, you’ll be assigned a faculty adviser from the appropriate department or school. Undeclared majors in the College of Arts and Sciences will be assigned an adviser by the college.
