The last week or so here in California has been a challenging time for many.  On a personal note, I have family in Newbury Park and the emotions have been high as winds change daily.  I know I speak on behalf of all our faculty and staff in sending our thoughts and prayers to everyone.  The college admission process and our looming December 1st deadline may not be the most helpful timeline given these events, and the university would like to help.

In support of those students affected by recent California wildfires, USC is extending the December 1 application deadline for undergraduate admission and scholarship consideration. If you require more time because of these events, you will have until December 8 to submit your application and supplementary materials.

Please complete the following form to notify our office that you require this extension:
