WASC Concurs that Advisement Database should be replaced

As part of USC’s accreditation review in 2021, WASC calls attention to the importance of the University’s advising practices in addition to a more modern technology platform.

USC generally attracts students with strong interdisciplinary interests and many pursue double majors and minors to advance their educational goals. However, students and some faculty expressed concern that current advising approaches and technology systems may not be effectively serving students’ convergent interests, particularly first-generation students with less experience navigating academic structures. The team recommends that USC develop advising practices and technology systems that will support goals for convergence, inclusion and timely degree completion.”
