studentsCongratulations to those of you who have been admitted as first-year students to the spring semester of 2014!

You may have always envisioned yourself starting at a 4-year institution in the fall of your freshman year, so this option may be a little confusing.  As a student admitted to spring, you will still be able to become involved in student activities and enjoy the fun and spirit of fall by participating in things such as football games and the marching band.

You will want to be in constant contact with us about choosing courses at a community college or another four-year institution to make sure you are on track to graduate with your class.

While some of the information in these admitted student posts apply to you, some do not – so please read on to learn about special campus visit programs and other information just for you!

Campus Visits for Students Admitted to Spring 2014

Leavey libraryWe are excited to have you visit campus as part of a few different programs designed specifically for you.  Spring Preview USC will be held on 3 different occasions in the next few weeks:

  • Friday, April 12, 2013
  • Tuesday, April 16, 2013
  • Friday, April 19, 2013

These Spring Preview programs are half-day programs running from 12:30-5pm.  The day includes a presentation from the Office of Admission, a USC Campus Tour, and visit with us in the Viterbi School of Engineering.  You will learn about what your life will be like as an engineering student at USC, meet some of our current engineering students, see facilities and labs, and get your questions answered about the enrollment process, housing, and your “next steps”.

Weekend Open House – Saturday, April 27, 2013

In addition to the Spring Preview dates, all students admitted to the spring semester are also invited to attend our large, weekend event: the On Campus Admitted Student Reception.

This large program will cover practically everything you want to know about USC and the Viterbi School.  In addition to our Viterbi School Information session, we will also have faculty and current students on hand to meet you and help you better understand your chosen academic discipline.  Representatives from our student organizations will show you some of the problems they are working to solve as well as some students showing off what they have been working on in their current classes.

The Open House will be held on Saturday, April 27 from 10am – 4pm.   RSVP for the day at – and we will see you there.  It should be a great day!
