If you are a transfer applicant, make sure to submit your application by February 1st to be considered for admission to the USC Viterbi School of Engineering.

Happy New Year! If you are a transfer student (you are applying from another two-year or four-year institution, or you are applying for your 2nd Bachelor’s), make sure to submit your application for Fall 2021 by Monday, February 1st at 11:59 PM (in your time zone).

In order to apply, you must submit the following by February 1st:

  • The Common Application (with any USC Viterbi major as your first choice)

We know that transcripts and other supporting documents may be arriving later than February 1st. That is all right! The only thing we need by the deadline is the CommonApp. Everything else can come in after (but don’t wait too long! We can’t review your app until it’s complete).

Apply Now

Make sure a USC Viterbi major (engineering or computer science) is selected as your first choice so you can be considered for engineering.

If you still have questions, you can check out our FAQ page or email us at We also just finished recording an AMA (Ask Me Anything) with our undergraduate admission staff where we answered student questions live!

Common App Support

Please note that if you do have technical issues submitting the application, contact the Common App Support Team! The best way to avoid any issues while submitting your application is to submit the application before February 1st.
