First-Year Student Profile

Last year, over 54,000 students applied for 3,100 places in the incoming first-year class. Approximately 17 percent were offered admission, and one-third of that group enrolled. Men and women apply to USC in nearly equal numbers; most first-year students come from the top 10 percent of their high school classes. USC receives applications from every state in the U.S. and almost 100 countries, resulting in an unusually bright, talented and diverse student body.
