Freshman Interviews start in August

By July 19, 2010July 30th, 2010One Comment

We offer admission interviews on campus and around the country as part of our application process – and they get started this August!

Interviews are entirely optional, however they give us another opportunity to learn more about you. Insights into your interests, personality and motivation assist us in making fair admission decisions.

Interviews are available to current high school students applying to USC as a freshman only. We do not conduct interviews for students not yet applying or transfer students. Interview appointments are limited, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis

Freshmen applicants for Fall 2011 can interview at anytime through our interview season. The interview season runs from August 2 – December 10, 2010 with interview spots available on a first-come, first-served basis practically every weekday.

We will also be conducting off-campus interviews throughout the fall on weekends in major metropolitan cities around the country. More information will be available in September.

The scheduler is available now – with the first day available to schedule an appointment as Monday, August 2nd.  For the time being we have released appointments through September.  We expect to release October – December sometime in early September.

We can’t wait to meet you!
