Please keep in mind these helpful reminders as you complete the application:
In order to make completing the application as simple as possible, prepare the following pieces of information ahead of time:
- Up-to-date professional resume
- Statement of Purpose
- List of Recommenders with contact information
- Transcripts from each previously attended college or university
Please note: Request an official copy of your transcript on University letterhead. Uploading unofficial copies, including those printed from a student portal, will not be reviewed and will ultimately delay the admissions decision.
We accept electronic transcripts from regionally accredited U.S. colleges and universities sent through third-party delivery services such as eSCRIP-SAFE, Docufide, and Parchment. We also accept electronic transcripts sent directly to us from your university.
Create a login for our Graduate Application Portal. Complete the online application, upload your documents, and pay a $90 application fee to submit your application. For more information on application materials needed, click here.
- Track your application and apply for Financial Aid
Check your application status from your you.usc.edu account. Use the same email address that you included on your application when registering for you.usc.edu. While you await your admissions decision, you may wish to get started on financial aid by completing a free application for federal student aid at fafsa.ed.gov and including the USC Federal School Code: 001328
