You were part of the largest applicant pool 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.
But we only have so much room to keep our programs small and personal. We are excited to offer you a spot in the 2018 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.
We know you have been admitted to a number of fantastic universities, and as a result you have a challenging decision ahead of you. We want to help you learn more about USC Viterbi to find out if we are the best place for you to thrive.
Here’s what we suggest doing as your next steps:
On campus or in a city near you
You can reserve your housing spot – even if you haven’t committed to USC.
