Admitted for Spring?


As one of our most recent additions to the Viterbi School of Engineering there is a lot for you to think about. You are likely admitted to some great schools and you have a tough choice to make! These admitted student pages are all about you and your decision. If you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at vadmit@usc.edu, or via the webchat at the bottom of your screen.

First Year Applications

You were part of one of the largest applicant pools in the history of USC and the Viterbi School of Engineering.  To say the competition was fierce is an understatement.  We had the opportunity to meet a number of great students through this last application cycle, we wish we could have admitted more.

First Year Students

But we only have so much room to keep our programs small and personal. We are excited to offer you a spot in the 2020 USC Viterbi first year class. You and about 400 others will start immediately in engineering courses this fall. Engineering faculty will teach your courses right from the start, and you will have the flexibility to do more than engineering.
