Freshmen not Ready for Calculus can Take Pre-Calculus Instead

Incoming freshmen who are not ready for calculus can start by taking a pre-calculus class on their first-semester freshman year instead.

We recommend that students who feel they are not ready for Calculus take the pre-calculus class first. It is better to take the extra class than to get a D or F in MATH 141/122.

No More Upper/Lower Level Division

The CSE department has eliminated the upper-level/lower-level distinction. So, you no longer have to fill out the form to move to upper-level.

The new rules will appear in the upcoming Fall 2016 USC Bulletin.

Advisement Summer and Fall 2015

Advisement for the Summer and Fall 2015 semesters will run March 16 to 27. All students must be advised before they can register for classes.

Tutoring Available in Swearingen for CSCE, MATH, and Other Classes

The tutoring is in the cube near Swearingen’s Assembly Street (Sonic) entrance.

We have greater math coverage than before as well as some key courses in several engineering, computing and science areas. The schedule is also posted around several bulletin boards in our buildings.

The tutors are hired and paid by the Student Success Center with an attempt to align their abilities with our degree programs. Many are our majors.

Advisement is Oct 27 to Nov 7

Advisement will be Oct. 27 through November 7th. All students must be advised before they can register for classes. You can find your advisor's name by going to my.sc.edu and login in by clicking on "Sign in to Self Service Carolina (SSC)". Then go to "Student Records", then "View Student Information". Or, you can drop by Student Services.

CSCE 390 Satisfies Carolina Core VSR

Our CSCE 390 course now satisfies the Carolina Core VSR (Values, Ethics, and Social Responsibility) requirement.

All Computer majors are required to take CSCE 390. Thus, Computer majors (CS, CE, CIS) do not need to take any other Carolina Core VSR class because this requirement will be fulfilled when they take 390.
