Self Service Carolina (SSC):
You will log into SSC for administrative tasks such as registration, financial aid, housing, and grades. SSC is also where you'll setup your USC Network Account which is used to log into Blackboard (for online courses).
To setup SSC for the first time, please follow the instructions found at this page: https://my.sc.edu/vipid/
Once you have your SSC account setup, you can log into SSC by going to http://my.usca.edu/ and clicking the "Self Service Carolina" link on the left side of the page under "Links".
NEXT...Setup MultiFactor Authentication (MFA):
As soon as you've setup SSC, you'll need to setup MFA, or Multi-Factor Authentication. This additional layer of security helps protect your sensitive private and financial information.
The first time you use an application that requires multi-factor authentication you will be led through a process to associate your mobile device with your account.
To ensure you don't run into issues at an inconvenient time, we suggest setting up MFA now.
Please see the "Multifactor Authentication for students" handout from Columbia, for details on how students setup and use MFA.
If you're ready to setup MFA, you can go directly to the setup page at: https://my.sc.edu/multifactor/
