9566938526_c617899be4_zCongratulations on your admission to USC! As a student beginning the next chapter of your 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, learn more about the curricula, 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 2015 Term:


Explore USC

Features: A presentation with the engineering school, engineering facility tours, meeting with faculty from the major you are interested in, Viterbi students, and more!

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 have a full afternoon with the Viterbi School of Engineering.

Your time with us in the Viterbi School will take you through an informative session on our academic programs.  We will arrange a meeting with faculty from the major you are interested in as well as engineering facility tours of that same area.  The evening will have you hanging out with some of our engineering students for a few hours, seeing the residence halls, enjoying dinner in a dining facility but most importantly experiencing the full USC atmosphere.
