OAA: Information for Students


The Office of Academic Advocacy (OAA) is dedicated to serving undergraduate students in their pursuit of timely progression to graduation. We work individually with students in academic distress to review their options, and we collaborate with academic departments, colleges and university personnel to improve retention and progression to graduation.

Undergraduate students identified as experiencing barriers to retention, progression or graduation may receive direct outreach from OAA to review their progress and to advise them towards graduation.

Major advisors and university department staff can refer a student to OAA when they perceive an academic barrier for that student.

Student inquiries and requests for appointments can be sent to academicadvocacy@usf.edu.
