Our transfer students come to USC from a wide array of paths and backgrounds.
We know that people are unique and we appreciate the wide variety of paths students take to become Trojan Engineers. There is no set formula to be admitted, you have a story to tell and we want to hear it.
Admission to the Viterbi School is determined through a comprehensive review of the entire admission application. We strive to get to know you, your interests, and goals by reading your entire application. While all factors are important, the most influential factor is your academic history.
There is no minimum GPA required to apply. However, to be a competitive candidate for admission you should engage in the right courses, challenge yourself and demonstrate academic success, particularly in math, science and engineering related courses.
