Contact an Advisor

Academic advisors in the Office of Student Services & Advising assist prospective and current students with individualized academic planning. A few services provided include academic advisement, career guidance, and opportunities to engage with the College of The Arts community. The advisors meet with students one-on-one to help each student map a path to graduation with opportunities for growth and knowledge during their time at USF.

Continuing students can set up meetings with their academic advisor throughout the year. Advisors help with graduation requirements, scheduling classes, and keeping students on track. To set up a meeting, go to Archivum – which is also on your MyUSF page under Business Systems. If you have any general questions, contact the appropriate advisor listed below. 


  • All meetings will be done on Microsoft Teams and not face to face.
