International Students

The University of Southern California welcomes international students.  We enroll more international students than any other U.S. university.  USC's world-wide reputation as a leading private research university and its location in Los Angeles, a global center for arts, technology and international trade, make it a strategic place for the international student to be.

Summer is an ideal time to experience the quality of a USC education, the scenic attractions of Southern California, and interaction with other students from across the U.S. and other countries. Enrollment is easy, and the experienced Summer Sessions staff is ready to assist you in any way to make your stay at USC memorable. We offer English courses for accepted and matriculated students and others who want to take courses at this level.  Placement is required in appropriate level.  Contact the American Language Institute for more information.
