Mythbuster: I already took a trip of USC, so I shouldn’t go to an Explore program.

The Myth: I’ve been to the campus for the tour before, and so I won’t need to visit as a student that is admitted.

The Verdict: even though you’ve visited campus, it’s helpful to see as an admitted student as you consider your admission offer.

Exactly what a time that is wonderful of! Admitted students recently heard they are part of the Trojan Family now its time for pupils to make the important decision of where you should go to college. At USC, we have many programs for pupils getting one look that is last they make their choice.

We have extended an offer of admission, and now it’s time to take a serious and look that is close. Where would I be residing? Who does be my classmates? Which professors is teaching my classes? What communities will we join? Visiting campus as an admitted student helps you answer those questions and begin to visualize your potential experience at USC.

Mythbuster: I’ve been admitted to spring, therefore I’m waitlisted


The Myth: I’m a springtime acknowledge, and so I’m essentially waitlisted.

The Verdict: No! You’re admitted to USC!

Every USC admits students to the spring semester, expecting to enroll about 300-500 of those students year. Many people assume spring admission is our waitlist. And while we could possibly move a number of the pupils to your fall semester, spring admission just isn’t a waitlist. Spring admission is an admission offer to USC.

So why do we do so? Well, every 12 months we know there will likely be students leaving in the spring semester by either graduating early or studying abroad. We also have a very competitive admission process at USC, so we can never admit most of the wonderful students who apply to USC. So spring admission permits us to admit more of this incredible students we want at USC because we understand we are going to have more room available in the spring semester.

Spring admits aren’t any less important to USC than pupils admitted to the fall or students who transfer to USC after several semesters of college elsewhere. Spring admits are as much USC students as any other Trojan, and they are wanted by us at USC as just about any Trojan. Coming to USC in the spring enables you to start your college experience in a way that is unique. You can ease to the university change by taking classes at a neighborhood college. It is possible to explore the globe through a research abroad program. You can even have a break from the grind and enjoy a month or two off of school!

When you haven’t done so already, you should visit our website at You will find plenty of information about the resources we have for our spring admits ranging from course planning for the fall to purchasing USC football period tickets.

That you are an accomplished student and a wonderful addition to the Trojan Family if you are a spring admit, please know. We look forward to welcoming you to campus spring 2017.
