We are First Year Advising

Welcome to Academic Advising & Transfer Services' Pre-Orientation page!

Transitioning from high school to college is an exciting time. Advisors in AATS hope to assist you in this transition by extending our services to you prior to orientation and by meeting with you in person to help you in reaching your academic goals. As with our current USA students, we want to ensure that your personal and academic goals align with your values and career goals, and we especially want to provide you with beneficial information before you even enroll at the University of South Alabama.

We encourage you to use this resource to access academic information and resources, such as Math Placement, AP/IB credit, and Academic Major Guides. You will also find answers to your Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and helpful "Tips from The Advisor's Desk."

If you would like to meet with an advisor before you register for courses at orientation, simply call our office (251) 341-4017. We will make sure you are connected with an advisor that specializes in your prospective field, and if you are exploring majors, we will talk to you about general education and strategies to help you find the major that will best fit! If you are unable to visit our office, please use our chat feature. The first available advisor will be happy to assist you!

We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible! We are ready to help you discover your "spots!"
