Registration and Advising
1. What should I do if I forget who my advisor is?
The JCBE office does not assign advisors. A list of advisors is on the touchscreen located at the entrance door. One can contact an advisor in one's concentration area by e-mail, phone or during faculty office hours.
2. How do I get admitted into the George Dean Johnson, Jr. College of Business and Economics (JCBE)?
Once you are accepted by the USC Upstate Admission's Office, business major applications are sent directly to the Johnson College of Business and Economics for further evaluation. When the student has met requirements and is ready to enroll into 300 level classes, a Johnson College of Business and Economics Application to the Professional Program form must be completed. Forms are located in the Student Service Center office (located in The George, room 210).
3. What is the process for registering for classes?
Make an appointment to see an advisor in your concentration area. Signup sheets will be posted in the atrium area of the first floor of The George one week prior to advisement week.
Meet your selected advisor at the designated time (JCBE does not assign advisors.) If you are unable to make your appointment time or if you miss your appointment time you should contact the advisor as soon as possible so another time can be arranged. Failure to notify your selected advisor or not showing up for your appointment may cause a delay in your registration time and result in closed classes you want/need.
Once you have met with your selected advisor you must be cleared for registration by the Student Support office in The George, room 210. Then you may consult the VIP system for your registration time. Registration times are assigned through the Records office and are based on the number of academic credit hours you have earned.
Each semester signs are posted around campus noting when advisement and registration begins. You may also consult the USC Upstate web site.
4. How do I change my major?
Change of Major forms are available in the JCBE Office of Student Services (The George, room 210). When complete, bring the form to The George, room 210 to acquire the Associate Dean's signature. You should then take the Change of Major form to your new department/division.
