Did you know the final deadline to apply to USC as a first-year student is January 15th?

If you are currently a senior in high school and are interested in studying engineering, we encourage you to apply to the USC Viterbi School of Engineering! The application for first-year (freshman) students for Fall 2019 is due NEXT TUESDAY, January 15th, by 11:59pm!

In order to apply, you must complete The Common Application and USC Writing supplement, and list any of the engineering disciplines as your first choice major.

If you want to be considered for the Viterbi School, make sure that a Viterbi major is listed as your first choice, otherwise our office never sees your application!

We have a lot of helpful information on our Apply page to get your started. You should also check out our recent blog series on Freshman Application Tips! We cover everything from what test scores we ask for, to checking the status of your application, to applying for financial aid, and more.

I hope your final year of high school continues to go well. If you have any further questions about our programs or the application process, please call us at (213) 740-4530, or email at
