Transferring to USC Viterbi Part 1 – Academics

Unsure of which major to pick, what research opportunities are available, or what kind of classes you’ll be taking? Look no further than our Academics page, where you can deep dive into learning about everything a particular discipline of engineering has to offer. Be sure to also check out the Viterbi Undergraduate Handbook, where you can see sample course plans for every major and every area of emphasis (starting on page 28!). You can also see which APs will transfer for credit (page 26!).



If you have any questions about our programs or the application process, please call us at (213) 740-4530, or email at
