Viterbi Voices: The Podcast – Ep 5-135: How To Transfer to USC Viterbi

If you are currently attending a community college or other university, and are interested in transferring to USC Viterbi for your engineerings degree, this podcast episode is for you!

Becky and Angie joined me on a wide-ranging, and detailed discussion about the transferring process.  We discussed how to best prepare for our engineering curriculum, transferrable courses, debunked some myths, and overall worked as hard as we could to answer the FAQs we get regarding applying as a transfer student for engineering at USC.

Of course, they all seem to focus on one key question (that is rarely asked overtly): “How do I get admitted as a transfer student to USC Viterbi?”

So, with microphones on we discussed the questions in detail, discussed the complexities involved in reviewing transfer student applications (no two transfer students are alike), and I hope, give you all a better idea of how transfer admission works.
