Planning a Campus Visit

Keeping our guests and our USC community healthy and safe remain our highest priorities. Due to ongoing concerns regarding coronavirus (COVID-19), USC Thornton campus visits and in-person information sessions have been cancelled. Please be aware that as the situation continues to develop, we may need to make additional updates to our scheduled programs. For the most up-to-date information about how our university is responding to this unprecedented situation, keep an eye on USC’s COVID-19 website. It is updated regularly and is the official source for USC information about the disease and its impact on our university.

Although we are disappointed that we’re unable to offer in-person visits during this time, we are eager to connect with you virtually! Please see below for details about virtual admission events.
