Welcome to Graduate Admission at the University of Southern California, one of the world’s leading private research universities. USC is home to over 27,000 top-caliber graduate and professional students —more than half the entire USC student population— who represent all 50 states and 135 countries around the world. We are proud to host one of the largest numbers of international students in the United States. We offer over 400 highly regarded graduate and professional programs in our liberal arts college and 20 professional schools. We encourage you to review our website to learn more about the graduate student experience at USC and to discover which of our academic programs is best suited for your interests.

USC is aware that some countries are experiencing extreme circumstances caused by armed conflict, social unrest or natural disasters. As a result, some prospective applicants from these countries may experience difficulties or delays in providing required documents such as transcripts or test scores, or with paying the application fee. If you anticipate such difficulties, please contact your intended department to discuss your options. We are here to help.
