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 according the available schedule. Interview appointments cannot be made by request outside of this schedule.
Applicants for Fall 2016 can interview at anytime through our interview season and do not need to have an application on file in order to interview. The on-campus interview season runs from August 3 - November 25, 2015 with interview spots available on a first-come, first-served basis practically every weekday.
Off-Campus interviews take place at select locations on specific weekends listed below. If you are planning on applying for admission, and would like to schedule an on-campus interview please login below with your USCID.
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. While specific locations and dates will be announced in early fall, we have scheduled off-campus interviews in these cities in the past: Boston, MA, Chicago, IL, Dallas, TX, Denver, CO, Honolulu, HI, Houston, TX, New York, NY, Portland, OR, Seattle, WA, San Francisco Bay Area, CA, Washington DC.
