The Viterbi School conducts admission interviews as part of its application process on campus and around the country. Interviews are entirely optional, however they give us another opportunity to learn more about you. Insights into your interests, personality and motivation assist us in making fair admission decisions.
Interviews are available to current high school students applying to USC as a freshman, first-year student only. We do not conduct interviews for students not yet applying or transfer students. Interview appointments are limited, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis
The on-campus interview season for fall 2015 applicants ran from August 1 - November 26, 2014. The interview schedule is now closed. Applicants for Fall 2016 should check back this summer for next year's interview schedule.
We also conduct interviews at a number of locations around the country. Interviews will be conducted (typically during the weekend) at Off-Campus locations starting in late October through early December. Spaces are limited - be sure to make an appointment early if you would like an interview near you.
