If you are a transfer applicant, make sure to submit your application by February 15th 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 2023 by Wednesday, February 15th at 11:59 PM (in your time zone).

In order to apply, you must submit the following by February 15th:

  • 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 15th. 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.

Here is a helpful video on how to apply as a transfer student!

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 15th.
