First-Year Student Profile

Last year, over 56,000 students applied for 3,358 places in the incoming first-year class. Approximately 16 percent were offered admission, and more than 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.
