  • Students requesting a late add/drop or an ARC petition make an appointment to discuss the details

What if I just have a simple question?

Simple advising questions can be answered via e-mail at InfoStudiesAdvise@usf.edu. Please include your U-number in the subject line. Be specific with your question. If your question is too complicated, you may be asked to make an appointment.

What do I need to bring to the appointment?

Please look over your DegreeWorks audit prior to your appointment. Note any errors or changes that need to be made. If you are bringing in transfer work for review, please have a copy of your syllabi.
