9567679648_46974184a0_oCongratulations on your admission to USC! As a student beginning the next chapter of their academic career, you have a tough decision to make as to what university you will be attending next year. The best way to really get to know a university and see if it is the right fit for you is to visit campus.  This will give you the opportunity to get a feel for the campus, talk to current students and faculty, and get all your questions answered.

The Office of Undergraduate Admission has specifically designed campus visit programs for admitted students. At these programs you will have the opportunity to explore the campus in its entirety, speak with Viterbi representatives, and gain a better sense of the community here at USC.


These programs are exclusively for first-year students admitted to the fall.  Students need only attend one of these programs.

The campus visit programs are as follows for students entering the Fall 2014 Term:

Explore USC

Explore USC is the most comprehensive campus visit program for admitted students. It is a full-day program that allows you to interact with dozens of our current students, tour the campus,  learn more about financial aid, gives you opportunities to sit in on classes, and a full afternoon with the Viterbi School of Engineering.

Your time with us in the Viterbi School will take you through a session on our academic programs.  We will arrange a meeting with faculty from the major you are interested in, and facility tours of that same discipline.  During the evening portion of Explore USC you will get to hang out with a engineering students for a few hours, see the residence halls, enjoy dinner in a dining facility and engage with the USC atmosphere.
