"I was hesitant because I felt like I would be getting a different experience, but the first steps I took on campus made me realize I absolutely made the best decision. This school is home for me now, and the transition was easier than I ever expected." - Rose Chute
"The best advice I can give to spring admits is to get involved! My involvement has provided lifelong friends, invaluable leadership experience, and, not to mention, a ton of fun! Take advantage of USC's endless opportunities by putting yourself out there and exploring." - Ryan Emhoff
Students who are admitted to Spring 2016 have a variety of options going forward. Many students take classes at local community colleges to begin earning credit toward their USC degree. Some work part-time or full-time jobs in the fall, while others enroll in study abroad* or community service programs all over the world.
We encourage you to explore this website to learn more about USC Dornsife. We also invite you to visit USC for Spring Preview, an event designed specifically for students admitted to Spring 2016. This half-day program, offered three times during the month of April, provides an opportunity to meet representatives from the Office of Admission, the Office of Financial Aid, and USC Dornsife. You will also have time for a campus tour, and you will be able to meet other newly-admitted students and start making connections with peers who may become your new classmates in the spring. Plus, you'll get to hear from a current USC Dornsife student who started during the spring and have a chance to ask any questions you might have. To sign-up, please visit you.usc.edu.
After you've committed to USC, you'll be able to sign-up for Winter Orientation, which will take place shortly before the spring semester begins. For more information, please click here.
*Some study abroad programs may not include the course offerings required for Natural Science majors and may delay your progress toward graduation. Please check with our office for help in determining if study abroad programs are appropriate for your course of study.
