By April 6, 2010No Comments

If you’ve received the good news – CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve done a lot of hard work to get to this point, and choosing which college is right for you may be a difficult choice.

There are a lot of components to consider when deciding whether USC may be the right choice for you.  Your next steps may seem confusing so, we’ve put together this handy-dandy checklist to help you out:

  1. Visit the Admitted Freshman Website
    Read, learn, call us if you need anything
  2. Visit Campus!
    If you can’t make it, check out the list of receptions we are holding across the country
  3. Check out this video – and send in your Housing Forms
    They’re in your admission packet
  4. Send in your Commitment Deposit
  5. Register for Orientation
    (only after your commitment deposit has been received and processed)
  6. Come to Orientation
    We will get you advised and registered for courses during the program (June & July), plus you will be meeting your classmates!
  7. Shop
    Get all the stuff you will need for college (clothes, sheets, etc)
  8. Move-In to USC
    We will be ready and waiting for you to join us officially on Wednesday, August  18!

We realize this is a difficult decision, and we would like to help.  Make sure to give us a call (800-526-3347) or drop us an email at viterbi.admission (AT) usc (DOT) edu.
