On-Campus Programs: Spotlight: USC
Applying to graduate school at USC involves thoughtfully presenting your academic qualifications and personal attributes to a very specific audience: your intended graduate program. Although we do our best to make this process as easy and straightforward as possible, many prospective students have questions and concerns as they begin their application, particularly if this is their first time applying to a graduate-level program.
Our Spotlight: USC program aims to help attendees navigate the USC graduate application process effectively. If you want to learn how to successfully complete USC’s online Graduate Application, avoid common mistakes (and possible delays), and make the strongest presentation possible to your prospective USC graduate program, Spotlight: USC is for you.
Attendees will learn about the mission and vision of the University of Southern California and how to successfully navigate the graduate admission process. They will also have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers from a representative of the USC Office of Graduate Admission. In addition, they can meet with their intended program’s admission staff, if they have already arranged to do so.
