All USC Tours and Information Sessions are cancelled through May 29th

We know we currently have both prospective an admitted students with a lot of questions about visiting campus and questions surrounding Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). The University recently updated its policies to move all classes online until May 29th and to cancel or postpone all on- and off-campus events through that same time period. The situation is fluid; stay up to date regarding USC at the following site:

Due to these updates, all admission events, including campus tours and information sessions, have been cancelled from March 12th – May 29th.  More from the Office of Admission can be found here:

While there are no cases of COVID-19 at USC, health authorities announced the first possible case of community transmission in Los Angeles County. Please be aware that as the situation continues to develop, we may need to make additional updates to our scheduled programs.

We know this is disappointing.  Our office is developing virtual information sessions to help make sure you get the information you need while exploring colleges. Stay tuned for more information as we continue to plan. For the time being, if you have any questions regarding undergraduate admission, please email us at or call or text us at 213.600.9919.
