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.
Considering engineers are very number-oriented, there’s no surprise that our applicants are asking us when exactly the application is due:
What time is the application due? What timezone?
We recommend submitting your common application and USC writing supplement at least a few days before the final deadline in order to ensure its submitted on time. For those of you who want to know the exact time the application is due, get it submitted by 11:59:59 pm PT on Saturday, December 1st to be considered for first-year admission for Fall 2019.
With the high volume of website traffic, Common App often has technical difficulties on December 1st, so be aware of that! If you have any technical difficulties with the Common App, the Common App Support Team is available 24 hours a day to help you.
You can also send us an email at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
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.
We hope this has helped you with your questions, and if you come up with any more please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call our office Monday-Friday, 8:30-5:00 at (213) 740-4530.
If you have any technical difficulties with the Common App, the Common App Support Team is available 24 hours a day to help you!
Best of luck in the college application process. We look forward to reading your applications. Fight On!
