In the Spring 2012 semester, USC Dornsife offered a small number of 4-unit courses which took place during the four weeks after graduation. In the Spring of 2013, nine courses, most of which will be 4 units, will again be offered.
Maymester courses will appear in the Spring 2013 Schedule of Classes, but are stand alone offerings that provide exceptional opportunities for research and experiential learning off campus, throughout the United States, or even abroad. The course offerings may be found in Special Sections in the USC Catalogue.
Maymester courses will be officially part of a spring semester load – when students register for their spring courses, they have the opportunity to register for three courses for the traditional spring semester and one course in the Maymester.
