▼   Academic Advising

At the University of South Alabama, academic advising is about you. You have completed advising for your first semester, but make sure you are familiar with your advisor(s) so you can contact them mid-semester to prepare for the next semester's registration! Academic Advising and Transfer Services advisors serve all first year students with the exception of Music.

You can find your advisor's information by logging into PAWS. Appointments for most advisors can be made through your PAWS account. 

Be sure to visit the Academic Advising & Transfer Services website to find great information on preparing for your first advising appointment and get helpful advising tips here!

▼   Paying your Tuition & Fees
Note the deadlines for payment. You can submit payment through your PAWS account or by contacting the Office of Student Accounting. Check your PAWS account for financial aid and scholarship award information.
