We know this time of year is busy with filling out your college applications, and we wanted to make sure we answered some of your frequently asked questions to help you through this process, so we’re posting a series of blogs with all of the Viterbi Application Tips you need to know.
This tip is about checking the status of your application! This week, a lot of students have been asking:
How do I check the status of my application or make sure USC has received all the necessary materials?
Once you have submitted your common application and USC writing supplement, you’ll receive a confirmation email “USC Admission Has Received Your Application” that provides a link where you can enter your username and pin to create your own password for the USC Applicant Portal.
Just be aware that you won’t be able to log in and check the status until after you have submitted your application and created your account via that confirmation email!
Just a year or two ago, our current students were going through the college application process too and they want to help. Check out our completely Viterbi Voices – a site completely run by our students to give you a peek into their lives as engineering students at USC. They blog regularly, have very active social media accounts, videos, and much more. Their Tips to Apply page details all of their best tips for applying to college.
You should also listen to our Viterbi Voices podcast called Busting Admission Myths with Paul Ledesma, Director of Undergraduate Admission for USC Viterbi, where some current engineering students ask him some burning questions about the application process.
