Meet Us: Admission Counselors

As the primary point of contact with the Undergraduate Office of Admission, USC admission counselors can help students successfully navigate the application and admission process and answer any questions that may arise.

Students and counselors can find the USC admission counselor responsible for their school or geographic area, or simply learn a little more about our counselors — who are happy to share their experiences and (hopefully) take some of the stress out of the application process.
