English (ISE) Examination

If you have been admitted with a condition that reads “Complete the International Student English (ISE) examination at the USC American Language Institute (ALI)…” then you are required to take the ISE exam before the start of the semester. The ISE exam is administered on multiple dates in early August for students beginning their studies in the fall semester; January for the spring semester; and May for the summer session. Please review the information at the link below for more details, and please sign up for the exam online. You will not be allowed to register for classes until you have completed the ISE.
