The Student Success Center exists to help students to succeed in their studies, graduate from USC Upstate in a timely manner, and begin a career or graduate study. Within the Center, four main areas are supported:
Academic Support Center
The primary student retention unit on campus, responsible for most campus tutoring services, supplemental instruction, and University 101 classes to provide students with the tools and resources needed to make a smooth transition into college.
Provides outreach, assistance and academic advising services to all undeclared students, those on academic probation, and those in danger of losing scholarship funding. In collaboration with student life and residential life, the Advising Center also provides academic programming to residential students. For more information, contact Mary Theokas at (864) 503-5306.
Works closely with the Academic Support Center to help students clarify their occupational goals and to sharpen their academic focus. In collaboration with faculty and area businesses, the Career Center aims to provide internship opportunities for students, as well as employment resources and prospects upon graduation.
A program designed to assist students in achieving their goals as they confront the challenges of completing a college degree. It provides services to eligible students from the time they are accepted to the University through graduation.
