Attend an Admitted Student Event: Attend an Admitted Student Event

We can’t wait to welcome you into the Trojan Family. Sign up for an event today!

Explore USC

Throughout the spring, USC offers a variety of opportunities to help admitted students connect with the Trojan Family. Although they will cover much of the same information about financial aid, housing and student life—meaning you should not worry about attending all of them—we encourage you to take a look at their features and choose the one that works best for you!

Visit the Explore USC page in your applicant portal to see event details and to register.

Explore USC on Campus
Weekdays throughout April
Explore USC on campus to see firsthand what it’s like to be a student here. You will be able to interact with faculty, meet and talk to current students who were also admitted to the spring term, and learn more about your program from department representatives. This program will also include an information session specifically for spring admits. It’s also a great opportunity to dine in a residence hall and take tours of campus and the surrounding neighborhood to get a feel for what your days will be like once you arrive at USC. Because this event is offered on weekdays during school hours, registrations are limited. Participants have found, however, that this gives them a more personal, one-on-one experience of daily life at USC.

April 2, 2023
This full-day Explore USC open house is ideal for families wishing to visit campus on a weekend. This program will also include an information session specifically for spring admits.Please note: This is the only event that includes a tour of USC housing options, including residence halls, suite-style rooms and apartment-style housing. If you’re unable to attend Admitted Student Day, however, housing tours are offered during summer Welcome Trojans orientation events.
