Transfer Planning Guides

As a prospective transfer student attending a California Community College you can access a Transfer Planning Guide (TPG) that is tailored to your major and institution.  The TPG will help you select courses based on your major that are guaranteed to transfer to USC.  TPGs are also available for limited four-year institutions. 

If you attend a California Community College or a four-year institution that is not listed on the TPG website, please check the USC Articulation Histories, and contact us for engineering specific courses.

Please note, you are not required to take all the classes listed under the "Major Requirement" section of the TPG.  We recommend that you have completed or have in progress (in the spring)  the following when you apply for transfer:
  • Calculus II
  • Two Terms of a Lab-Based Science
  • USC's Writing Requirement
  • 30 Transferable Semester Units or 45 Quarter Units

Build Your Transfer Coursework Plan


Viterbi transfer admission counselors are here to help you customize your personal transfer coursework plan. If you'd like to chat over the phone or meet in person, we can identify courses you can take to prepare for engineering.

Transfer Admission Counselors are available Monday thru Friday from 9:00am - 5:00pm.

Please call (800) 526-3347 or email


Transfer Planning Guide

When you visit the Transfer Planning Guide website please select which California Community College you attend or plan to attend (option 1) or which four or two year institution you attend or plan to attend (option 2). Next, select the engineering degree program you wish to pursue.  Viterbi has over 30 engineering majors.

If you have not decided which major you would like to pursue, please select "Bachelor of Science, Pre-Engineering (Undeclared)".
