Welcome USC Trojan transfer hopefuls! This is a new thread for those who will turn in their app by Feb 2023 in order to commit (fingers crossed!) to USC for fall 2023 or Spring 2024.
Transferring is such a long process at USC and posters can really get to know each other - this thread tends to be very supportive - it’s collaborative like USC! Past successful transfers often chime in to share what they experienced. It’s exciting to see so many successful in their quest to transfer! We have seen friendships and future room mates formed on this thread.
I would suggest reading through past threads for some good info. You can search 2022-2023 USC Transfer - or earlier years as well, we use the same naming format each year so they are easy to find.
Go through everything they have there - it’s really helpful and answers so many questions. Don’t hesitate to reach out to your assigned admissions advisor with questions that can’t be found online; establishing a relationship with them can be a good thing.
Not sure if Viterbi Pathways is for CC applicants, but from my understanding, campus housing is available for transfer, but most transfers won’t get housing. You’d have to get pretty lucky to get housing as a transfer, as far as I know.
i was thinking i wasnt going to reach out; i feel like it might be worse to draw attention to it? its a pretty big flub but i only do it once and my essay is super specific to usc so its not like i copy and pasted. ugh idk
Do not contact them. Nothing to say really. It’s an oops. Calling it out won’t help. They may read past it and even if noticed, if your essay is USC specific as you mentioned, it will be fine. You wouldn’t be the first.
Submitted my app like 2 hours ago. Im really nervous cuz I fall on the less competitive end compared to previous USC transfer acceptance stats I read on here. Hoping I can use this thread as a vent and camaraderie situation:))
My son is currently attending Saddleback College in Orange County. He is about to finish up AS in Computer Science (CS) with GPA 4.0. I really hope that he can transfer to USC for CS or CSE, and wonder what are his chances of transferring to USC for CS or CSE. Any insight would be much appreciated.
