Admitted for Spring?

Congratulations

As one of our most recent additions to the Viterbi School of Engineering, there is a lot for you to think about. You are likely admitted to some great schools and you have a tough choice to make! This admitted student page is here to help you with your decision. If you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at vadmit@usc.edu, or via the webchat at the bottom of your screen.

14,276
First Year Applications

You were part of the largest applicant pool in the history of USC and the Viterbi School of Engineering.  To say the competition was fierce is an understatement.  We had the opportunity to meet a number of great students through this last application cycle, and we wish we could have admitted more.

410
First Year Students

But we only have so much room to keep our programs small and personal. We are excited to offer you a spot in the 2021 USC Viterbi first year class. You and about 400 others will start immediately in engineering courses this fall. Engineering faculty will teach your courses right from the start, and you will have the flexibility to do more than engineering.

Next Steps

Here’s what we suggest doing as your next steps:

Register for a Virtual Admitted Student Keynote Session

If you only have time for one event, make it this one. We will discuss our curriculum, your four year plan, our co-curricular programs to fulfill your experience, and each session will have a current student panel to answer your questions.

Programs for fall admits will be held on…

Programs for spring admits will be held on…
