Interview in ProgressAs we head into summer, the USC application process for the Class of 2015 is beginning to warm up!  It may not “officially” be your senior year in high school, but if you are a rising senior, your application process is about to begin.

As of today, we have opened up the On Campus Admission Interview schedule for the month of August.  Admission Interviews will be held for first-year applicants from the beginning of August until the end of November.  We do not conduct interviews for transfer applicants. If you are planning on applying for Fall 2015, live near campus (or plan to visit), and want to schedule an interview for August – jump on over to our online scheduling system now.

Appointments are limited and available only for select times according to the online schedule.

While we are only taking appointments for interviews in August, we will open up more availability for September, October and November in mid-August.  Off-Campus appointments will be made for select weekends in select cities to be announced in early September.

Admission Interviews are entirely optional and not a required part of our application process.  Be sure to read through our Admission interview page for more details and clear understanding of whether an interview is right for you.  If you have any questions, or would like to discuss the interview process a bit more, please give us a call (213-740-4530) or email us at

Happy 4th of July!
