Class of 2024, please continue to use the 2024 class thread for questions and comments regarding your upcoming start and first year at USC!https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/university-southern-california/2152218-usc-class-of-2024-applicants-thread.html#latest
Thought this was news worthy enough to kick off the 2025 thread, per USC:
• Official Test Scores: Due to disruptions in testing schedules caused by COVID-19, prospective first-year students may apply to USC for the 2021-2022 Academic Year without submitting SAT or ACT scores, although students may still choose to submit SAT or ACT scores if they wish.
For students who submit test scores, USC records the highest scores for those who have taken tests more than once. For the SAT, the highest scores for both the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and the Mathematics section will be recorded, even if achieved in different sittings. For the ACT, USC will just consider the highest composite score. USC does not require the writing section for either the ACT or the SAT general test.
