The Office of Pre-Professional Advising provides assistance and support of USC pre-law, pre-med, and pre-health professional students.

As an important step beyond academic advising, the office will assist USC students and alumni in the application process to the professional schools of their choice. The office assists by providing administrative support, workshops, a vast array of resources, test and application materials, an active listserv, shadowing opportunities, individual and group advising, an information bulletin board, and a credentials service. The office aims to keep interested applicants informed about important deadlines, evolving issues in their areas of interest, and helpful resources on and off campus.

From your first semester in college, the University of South Carolina offers opportunities that can enhance your chances of acceptance to professional school. These same opportunities can also help you grow as an individual and enjoy a more fulfilling college experience. From participating in community projects to attending workshops on essay-writing, the possibilities are many. Contact our office as soon as you arrive on campus and ask to be placed on our listserv.
