You did it!

Congratulations on being selected as one of our #ViterbiAdmit students!


We know its been a long road.  The stress and worrying about college admission is now over, and we know you have great schools from which to choose.  It is definitely an exciting time,

But…. the exciting time also can get a bit stressful.  Unfortunately, you have a deadline to choose which university to attend by May 1st.

Your To-Do List:

 

  1. COMPLETE FINANCIAL AID
    Make sure to complete all financial aid paperwork to find out how much it will actually cost to attend.
  2. VISIT CAMPUS or ONE OF OUR PROGRAMS
    Make an informed decision by trying to get as much information you can via Campus Visits for Fall Admits, Campus Visits for Spring Admits and off-campus programs near you.  RSVP for any program at YOU.USC.EDU
  3. COMPARE
    Be sure to visit the other colleges to which you have been admitted.  While they are all great schools, you need to determine which one “fits” you the best.

We will be continuously posting about ways to visit campus, when we will be visiting your area, financial aid, housing, and other cool stuff you may want to know as you make your decision.
